Although this year’s Main Street Texarkana Christmas Parade has been cancelled, there are other sights and sounds of celebration throughout Downtown Texarkana.
MST Director Ina McDowell tells us:
Downtown businesses have begun decorating their windows, as is their tradition, and a
“Christmas Tree Wonderland” is taking shape at Crossties on E Broad Street, which hosts family events most weekends, with a Polar Express movie screening coming this Friday, Dec 4. Also this weekend, TRAHC will host their annual Open House & Arts Market, with local artisans selling their wares, and Southern Grace Boutique is holding an open house with shopping and refreshments.
In weeks to come, 1894 City Market will host their Second Saturday Trade Days, with many vendors located outside, and the Texarkana Symphony Orchestra’s holiday concert is still planned at this time for Dec 13. Crossties has more family events planned for the month and on Dec 19 Perot Theater is hosting Holiday Traditions, a trio of holiday movies that play on the big screen in the historic theater.
Also supporting downtown Texarkana is the annual Main Street Christmas ornament, now for sale at several different local businesses.
