Grab a buddy and go for a walk | Events
Everyone needs a buddy!
The 8th Annual Buddy Walk will be held tomorrow from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Paragould.
The Buddy Walk was started in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month and promote acceptance of people with Down syndrome.
Registration for the walk is $10 per person or $25 for a family of 3 or more. T-shirts are included in the registration fee.
In addition to the walk, there will be games, door prizes, bounce houses, karaoke, face painting and a silent auction.
Live entertainment will be provided by Hailey Reed, Trick E. the Clown and an Elvis impersonator.
There will also be lunch and snacks provided, as well as ice cream and sodas.
Everyone is invited to come enjoy a day of fun and help raise money for the Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Arkansas.
