Weekend Plans: Pink Tomato Festival, Natural State Beer and Wine Festival

Thursday

Join the Oaklawn Center on Aging throughout the month of June for their Tai Chi Series: Strength in Motion. The event will take place every Thursday from 2 p.m.-3 p.m. on the Great Lawn & Garden Pavilion at Garvan Woodland Gardens through June 28. Tai Chi is an ancient, graceful form of exercise that increases balance, strength, and overall flexibility. Comfortable footwear and clothing are recommended for all participants. Admission is $15 for non-members.

Friday-Saturday

Don’t miss one of the longest-running festivals in Arkansas, the 62nd annual Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival, in downtown Warren this weekend. The festival has something unique to offer everyone in the family, including live music, a tomato-eating contest, crafts, carnival rides, fireworks and a “Great Bowls of Fire” salsa contest. The Bellamy Brothers will be headlining entertainment on Friday night, followed by Saturday’s headliner, Mark Chestnutt. The event will wrap up with a grand finale fireworks show on Saturday night.

Saturday

The Natural State Beer and Wine Festival will kick off on Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Historic Downtown Farmers Market in Hot Springs, and run through 8 p.m. The festival will showcase Arkansas-based breweries and wineries, and food vendors will also be in attendance. Tickets are $40 for general admission, $60 for VIP access, and $10 for designated drivers. A portion of proceeds will help support the Spa City Blues Society.
