Arkansas always loves to throw us curveballs during the season of fall. We’ll dress ourselves in layers of clothing in preparation for a chilly day, only to be shedding a few of those layers by noon as the temps rise. And then, of course, we put them back on again at nighttime once the temperature drops again. How frustrating!

 

Aside from the weather, one thing we never have to complain about in The Natural State is a lack of fun fall activities. From pumpkin patches to corn mazes to apple-picking and more, we’re fortunate to have such a wide variety of fun activities around the state. And to help you keep up with them, we’ve composed a list of things to do! Of course, there are so many events around the state that it’s easy to miss a few. If you know of an event we can add to our list, please let us know by contacting Online Editor Kilee Hall at khall@aymag.com.
