For those craving fall, cooler weather may not be on the horizon but a weekend full of outdoor adventures and delightfully spooky movies is. Corn mazes, sunflower fields and a night at the drive-in are all on the table for the weekend.


The 112 Drive-In is showing “Beetlejuice” and “Gremlins” at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. respectively Friday-Sunday, just in time for those in Northwest Arkansas to start getting in the “spooky season” mood.

Those looking to get out of the house after the sun sets, Crystal Bridges North Forest Lights is back for a second season. North Forest Lights will be operating at a one-third capacity to ensure social distancing. Sanitation stations and touchless tickets will be available. Tickets are $22 for nonmembers.


The Fayetteville Farmers Market, a Saturday morning staple, will be open from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on the Downtown Square. End-of-summer veggies, beautiful bouquets and hand-made masks are only a few things patrons will find.

For those who have already lit their fall candles and busted out the Hobby Lobby decor, it is opening weekend for Farmland Adventures in Springdale. For the $6 entry fee, attendees can make their way through a 9-acre corn maze, visit the pumpkin patch, go on a wagon ride and more. The sunflower fields will also be open for photos. The farm opens at 1 p.m.


NWA residents looking for a break from the fall antics or just looking for live music, can fulfill their dreams at Six Twelve Coffeehouse & Bar on Sunday evening with a live performance from Jerold Deowding. The show starts at 6 p.m.
