The heat and humidity are on in East Texas! It's expected this time of the year though as high pressure and that infamous 'heat dome' control our weather from now through probably mid-September! We'll adjust though and bear it.

While we seek some relief from the heat, some of this weekend's activities will have us right in the middle of the heat and humidity as we watch some fireworks shows in Tyler or Winona, go shopping in Canton during First Monday Trade Days, or hit up the Juneteenth rodeo on Longview. There are though a couple of things that take place indoors, like a good ole comedy show.

Here's a look at this weekend's event happening across East Texas.
