These summer days are hot, but the nights are sweet – especially when you’re chowing down on the Dickey-Stephens Park fried Oreos. Having the Arkansas Travelers here in Central Arkansas is a blessing and an excellent outing for any crowd.
I was so relieved to hear that the Arkansas Travelers will stay at North Little Rock’s Dickey-Stephens Park. For a few weeks, it was up in the air whether the minor league team would stay in the park, but Arkansas Travelers CEO and Vice-President Rusty Meeks stated that he’s certain the Travelers will remain in North Little Rock.
One of our favorite family outings is sitting in the open arena of Dickey-Stephens with a corndog in one hand and a cold drink in the other. My kids, at any age, always have a blast watching the game and hanging out with their friends. Likewise, I enjoy going with a group of friends and getting to spend quality time with people that I love and care about in a different setting.
There’s nothing like that wave of nostalgia when “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” plays and the entire crowd sings along. I am all for finding those little moments that make you feel like a kid again. “Root, root, root” -ing for the Travelers transports me to simpler times that I took for granted.
To be completely honest, the food alone is worth the trip. Fried Oreos, corndogs, hot dogs, funnel cakes, popcorn and so much more are sold at the park – for reasonable prices, too. There are drinks for everyone from lemonade to soda to alcoholic beverages, so fighting the heat is no issue.
Have you ever seen the fireworks show at Dickey-Stephens? If you haven’t, you need to go right now because this show is one of the best.
Speaking of best, the main event, the Arkansas Travelers always gives us fans a great game. These men are incredibly talented and play hard to really give us fans something to cheer for. This team is a true gem of the state and we need to realize, especially those living in Central Arkansas, how lucky we are to have such easy access to world-class entertainment.
The park frequently hosts nights for different groups, discounts, themes and other exciting twists. If you have a club, organization, church group or just a girl gang, a trip to the ballpark is perfect for all.
