Arkansas PBS is bringing Family Day back to Conway on Saturday, Nov. 5.

 

This free public event encourages community spirit through family-friendly fun, entertainment and educational activities. It will be held at 350 South Donaghey Ave. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Families are encouraged to RSVP at myarpbs.org/familyday.

 

This year’s theme is “‘C’ is for Community,” allowing families to enjoy all that public media and its partners offer Arkansas, from A to Z. Special guests for the day include Alma from “Alma’s Way,” Buddy from “Dinosaur Train,” Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George and Daniel Tiger. Families are welcome to meet and take photos with the characters.

 

During the event, Arkansas PBS will kick off the 2022 Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive, so everyone is encouraged to bring their new and gently used sweaters to donate and help keep their neighbors warm this winter.

 

Additionally, Arkansas PBS has planned free activities and entertainment for the entire family:

 

Local food trucks, including Ol’ Bart Southern Eats, Grilled Sandwich Company, Chicken Salad Chick and Fry Fry Crazy will be on hand for additional food and snacks.

 

Community service groups or corporate volunteer groups interested in volunteering for Arkansas PBS Family Day are welcome to sign up. Additional information and the most current schedule of activities are available at myarpbs.org/familyday.
