Giveaway: More Imagination Movers Tickets!

Note from the mamas: Congratulations to winner Erin Freeze!

My kids are very excited today because I just bought us four tickets to see the Imagination Movers live in concert at the Walton Arts Center. (I took advantage of the family four-pack of tickets for $66, which I’d say is a very good deal for a nationally-known kids group with a show on the Disney Channel. Click here for info on the discounted price.)

Local mom Rebecca Arnold and her little girl are also excited because they WON four tickets last month here on nwaMotherlode to see Imagination Movers as well as a gift card to U.S. Pizza on Dickson Street in Fayetteville, just steps away from the concert. And here’s more good news: We’ve got FOUR MORE FREE TICKETS  to give away for this show! 🙂 The tickets are for the Saturday, July 30th performance at 11 a.m. at the Walton Arts Center. Once again, we’re pairing the tickets with a $25 gift card for our favorite pizza in Fayetteville, U.S. Pizza.

ABOUT THIS SHOW: The Imagination Movers premiered on the Playhouse Disney channel in 2008. In the show, these four friends — Dave, Rich, Smitty and Scott — work as a team of movers who often need to use their imagination to solve problems. Also appearing in the show are Uncle Knit-Knots, Nina and Warehouse Mouse. The group is known for some of their catchy songs including “Brainstormin’,” “My Favorite Snack,” and “Clean My Room”. (We mamas especially like that last song.)

The Imagination Movers are so hip that they were described by Indie Kids Rock as “the U2 of kids music.” The lyrics are fun and completely appropriate for kids, but they’re not so syrupy sweet that you’ll get a toothache just listening to them.

ABOUT THE FOOD: As always, we like to send our ticket winners to a concert on a full stomach. So our friends at U.S. Pizza on Dickson Street have offered to drum up some dinner for you first. The ticket winner will get a gift certificate to have lunch before or after the show, which means you’ll find out why some people won’t have pizza anywhere but U.S. Pizza. There’s something about the famous crust and sauce that has created a very loyal fan base of customers over the years. Their salads and sandwiches are amazing, too, and they’re very kid-friendly.  Click here  or on the logo below to see their menu.

  1. I ran across a plant stand at Big Lots on sale and bought it up right away- I tied a banner to it & mixed up some lemonade, and the kids sell it every chance they get! They’re enjoying it so much that they’re already making plans to sell hot cocoa there in the winter. 🙂

  2. Our family has enjoyed boating from our home on Beaver Lake to the cafe at Hickory Creek Marina. Hopefully this comment will help their business! A relaxed atmosphere with tasty food and friendly staff. (They’re not paying me for this shout-out!) I just love the concept of waterfront restaurants, and I hope they grow as big as they want to be.

  3. This summer I most value the time we spent seeing things that we have never seen and visiting with family that we rarely get to see. Of course just being together is the ultimate best.

  4. Well we haven’t done it yet but we are going to Branson to enjoy white water, silver dollar city, and dixie stampede!

  5. this summer has been all about the “staycation” for us. we have had so much fun enjoying all that NWA has to offer that we don’t have time to do during the school year.

  6. My kids and I have played outside in the water and seen several of the summer movies at Malco. My older kids and I also went to a day camp for a week. We are having a lot of fun and would love to add to it by seeing the Imagination Movers!

  7. We drove to Mobile, Al for the 4th of July. We spent 1 day at the beach at Golf Shores. On the 4th we took the kids to Fairhope and watched the fireworks from the beach!!!! The kids loved it! They want to do it again next year.

  8. I think this is a GREAT website. I live the KIDS EAT FREE restaurant list, the giveaways, and the great tips!

  9. The family went to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX. It has a large indoor waterpark. Nate loved the wave pool and Evan like the thrill slides:)

  10. We’ve done a few fun things this summer so far, but the kids like the waterparks and painting rocks the best. We go to the Bentonville and Rogers waterparks and the kids think it is so cool and funny. Painting rocks is also huge at our house…it’s so fun to go find them and then paint them. They think they’re just having a blast, but I know they’re working on their fine motor skills, so I doubly like it! 🙂

  11. I think the most fun my kids have had this summer was at our 5 year old birthday party. They love hanging with their friends and eating sweets!

  12. We took my daughter and her 6 cousins to the Rodeo! She hasn’t stopped talking about it!

  13. The kids have been on several field trips to the pool, the zoo, the movie theater, etc. We have also spent a lot of time with family this summer 🙂

  14. My daugher, 5, and I have stayed up till dark and gone out to play flashlight tag. She loves it!

  15. We are trying to beat the heat with frequent trips to the bentonville splash pad and the snow cone stand!

  16. Our favorite thing from this summer…welcoming our newest member of the family. Daughter #3 was born June 7! My two older girls have enjoyed getting to know their little sister. Would love to win this and give them some “big girl” fun!

  17. This summer we are spending our time doing fun activities at home and around NWA hunting for places that are low cost or no cost, I have two college kids and a 4 year old, soooo my budget is very limited, we love Imagination movers, my 20 and my 4 year old know most of the songs and it is really fun to see them singing a long while we drive around.

  18. Our favorite thing to do during the summer is celebrate my son’s birthday every year! July 29th. This would be an awesome bday gift for his 3rd bday! 🙂

  19. My daughter and I have had a very fun summer so far We took two weeks and went to visit family in three different cities up North. We hit all the funniest places for kids and had a blast with her cousins. Winning these tickets would be the cherry on top of a wonderful summer.


  20. We went to the Zoo – her first trip to the zoo, and my first in many years! Our favorite was the Meerkats. So cute!

  21. Summer is for swimming, but when it is as hot as it has been, finding things to do in the cool are hard to come by. That is why we like going to the aquarium in Jenks!

  22. We’ve had a lot of fun with family this summer! Which isn’t that big of a deal until you realize they’re 10 hours away! (Both sets! lol) We’ve made some big trips and had fun along the way, but have really enjoyed hanging out at the lake house with Grammy and Boo Boo and having a 4th of July reunion with Honey and Grandbob. Nothing like some grandparents to make summer complete!

  23. We’ve been to Branson a couple of times this summer for Silver Dollar City and White Water. We’ve had such a great time!

  24. pool time, swimming lessons, and library time. considering a trip to Great Wolf!

  25. Well we are trying to find inovative ways to do staycations with our kids to save $ so one thing we did was pull out all of our old beach umbrellas we’ve collected and put them up around an inexpensive wading pool we’ve had. We made a big picnic and ate on blankets and played in the pool most of the day. The kids really enjoyed it. That following day, we took the kids to Eureka Springs to see a real pow-wow. my son is still dancing around like the fancy dancer. Good time for 5$ We were asked again if we could do the pool and picnic this weekend.

  26. It is hard for us all to have the same time off together, so we are happy with dinner and a movie. Time together has been the best part.

  27. We just returned from a trip to FL where we had a blast. My 2 year old is a daredevil and wanted to dive head first into the waves in the Atlantic. Yikes! 🙂

  28. We spent a week in Florida with the whole family – grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. It was so much fun to all be together!

  29. We’ve gone swimming in big pools and little pools and played in the sprinkler. The kids just love playing in the water!

  30. My son and nieces and nephews love to be outside… So we took ALL 6 of them to the rodeo this year! They had so much fun! All the girls had matching outfits and it was definitely a night to remember! We are so blessed to have such a close family!

  31. My granddaughter and I drove to Panama City Beach for Memorial weekend–had a blast! One of the highlights was parasailing and, of course, just enjoying the beach itself!

  32. We went on a long weekend camping trip with the kids at the river. They had a great time swimming and got to bring their puppy for her first camping trip.

  33. Just went to the George W. Carver Birthplace – National Park in Diamond, MO. Very inspirational! SDC in Branson, swimming, visiting family and spending time together!

  34. Packing now for a trip to the St Louis zoo. The girls are so excited and I’m hopeful we may actually leave our last Paci with the zebras!

  35. Cookouts and barbecues. Swimming. Whitewater and Silver Dollar City. Movies.

  36. This summer has been really busy. We are just trying make the most of every moment.

  37. This summer has been crazy busy. We haven’t really done anything great yet, however this would be wonderful!

  38. Just got back from a great visit with the kids to Little Rock to visit their Grandma and Pop Pop. We took a ride on the Arkansas Queen, an old fashioned paddlewheel steamboat, down the Arkansas River. The kids loved it!

  39. My family and I have been taking advantage of the $2 movies every week at the Razorback. We are going to Holiday World in Santa Claus, IN the first week in August and I am probably more excited than the kids!!!

  40. This summer we took our two year old to the Tulsa zoo and out of all the wonderful, big animals there; our boy was far more interested in the squirrel that followed us around begging for the cheese balls he kept throwing out of the stroller! Sometimes, the simplest things are the most fun:)

  41. Spent lots of time swimming, having in and outdoor camping events, and setting off fireworks.
