Food and fun this November

Food and fun this November
Kim Williams

The holiday season is upon us! It’s a great time to get out and have some fun with the entire family.

On Nov. 18, head to Parkin Archeological State Park in Parkin for Casqui Foods Day. Sample foods that would have been enjoyed by the ancient inhabitants of Casqui. While the ancient inhabitants of Parkin didn’t have pizza and cheeseburgers to enjoy, they had a varied and healthy diet. Experience the tastes of the past. Most of the dishes will be created from food grown in the park’s on-site garden and other ingredients gathered from the surrounding area. Learn about what foods were and weren’t available to the prehistoric Native Americans and marvel at how they still created delicious dishes. The event is free. For details, contact the park at 870-755-2500.

The Crittenden County Courthouse square in Marion is the site for Christmas on the Square on Nov. 30. The family-friendly event features train rides, live music provided by the Marion High marion christmas on the square3 resized School Jazz Band and Choir, holiday treats, cookie decorating, and, of course, a visit from Santa himself. Visit or call 870-739-6041 for more information.
