Even as Arkansas begins to open, it is still important to follow CDC guidelines, especially social distancing. This can put a major damper on your Memorial Day Weekend plans, but there are still plenty of ways to celebrate and remember those that have served our country. Here are some of the ways we at Steve Landers Toyota will be celebrating this year! 

 

Have a Video-Chat Barbecue 

If a cookout is your normal Memorial Day tradition, why not host a video-chat barbecue? Join with your friends and family and cookout together over FaceTime or Zoom! It’s a great way to celebrate and socialize while staying safe. 

 

Enjoy Arkansas’s Incredible Hiking Trails

Arkansas is called The Natural State for a reason! Get outside with the family and enjoy some of the beautiful hiking trails nearby, or take a little road trip to visit some a little further away! In North Little Rock you can enjoy the Emerald Park Walking Trail: a 5.5-mile trail along the Arkansas River with a beautiful view of Downtown Little Rock! In West Little Rock you can take on Pinnacle Mountain, or if you’re willing to take a drive, try out one of the trails in the Ouachita National Recreation Trail

 

Watch the National Memorial Day Concert 

The National Memorial Day Concert will be broadcasted on Sunday, May 24 at 7 p.m. on PBS. Tune in to watch Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise host this presentation honoring our troops, veterans, wounded warriors, and those who have given their lives for our country. 

 

Create a Drive-Thru Memorial Day Parade

Since many parades are cancelled this year, have a social distancing parade of your own! Celebrate with your community by coordinating a drive-thru Memorial Day Parade in which participants decorate their vehicles in patriotic decorations. Drive your parade through the streets of your neighborhood to share the love! 

 

Break Out the Sprinklers and Cool Off 

Turn on the sprinklers, fill up some water balloons and get your water guns ready! In Arkansas, many spend Memorial Day cooling off by the pool or spending the day at the lake. This year, plan a water day for you and your family right in your backyard! 


Happy Memorial Day from all of us at Steve Landers Toyota. We are so grateful to our troops and veterans for their service. Thank you for the sacrifices you have made for our country. We would like to thank you for your courage and commitment by offering a $500 rebate to eligible military personnel, retirees, veterans and household members of military personnel.
