Only People From Arkansas Understand These 10 Crazy Traditions

They aren’t so crazy to native Arkansans, but activities such as calling for hogs during a sports game or measuring how far a toad can jump might look a little weird to an out-of-towner. If you know and love the Natural State though, you know what we mean when we snack on fried pickles or can point out all the best places to see holiday lights at Christmas!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

So, no – these traditions aren’t crazy. Different? Maybe, but considering the rituals practiced by other states, what we do in Arkansas isn’t so strange after all. Leave a comment and tell us about some other Arkansas-based traditions you’ve participated in or heard about!
