East Texas Weekend Happenings: March 29-31
Spring has sprung all across East Texas and it’s the time of the year that many East Texans get out of the house and look for something to do outdoors. Planning something outdoors this weekend though could be a bit chancy though because Mother Nature has plans to water her garden all weekend! If you don’t mind dodging some hit or miss showers all weekend get out and check out these events:
Canton – First Monday Trade Days – Hwy. 64 & Hwy. 19
First Monday Trade Days offers a wide variety of crafts, homemade goods and a chance to find that coveted treasure for your home along with many other finds for the house and more. Plus, there’s a ton of homemade fair style food too!
Tyler – Azalea & Spring Flower Trail – Azalea District
Roses put Tyler on the map, but its the azaleas that bring thousands of tourists to Tyler at this time of the year. The azaleas have had some challenges this year thanks to the weather, some blooms came out late and others were damaged this week by two freezes, but they are still beautiful along with the spring flowers. The Azalea and Spring Flower Trail winds through the historic Azalea District in Tyler and runs through April 7th.
Palestine – Dogwood Trails – Davey Dogwood Park
The dogwood trees are in full bloom in Palestine offering up bright blooms for visitors to enjoy, but you need to check them out this weekend as this is the last weekend of the Dogwood Trails Celebration.
East Texas Easter Egg Hunts
The kids can hunt for Easter Eggs in various locations throughout the area (weather permitting of course). Check here for a list of Easter egg hunts.
