Christmas in Downtown Texarkana
NEWSFLASH: We have just received our new supply of the uber-popular 2015 Main Street Texarkana pewter medallions (also useful as Christmas tree ornaments) depicting the view south on State Line Avenue from the Photographers’ Island. The perfect last-minute gift to warm the heart of your loved one while helping the heart of your beloved community. Available at Fan Fare, Pleasant Grove Pharmacy, and Chamber of Commerce.
The 31st Annual Christmas Parade is in the books! We were blessed with great weather, a large number of entries, and great crowds to celebrate the season. And three wise people on camels led the procession. A great night. Thank you, Texarkana!
The 2015 judges’ picks from among the many parade entries was tough:
COMMERCIAL: (1) Jordan Health / CIMA Hospice, (2) Texarkana Renaissance Faire, and (3) Anderson Orthodontics.
NON-COMMERCIAL: (1) Victory Christian Academy, (2) Faith Assembly of God, and (3) Mount Grove Baptist Church.
MARCHING: (1) Texas High School, (2) Liberty-Eylau High School, and (3) Pleasant Grove High School.
Congratulations to Domestic Violence of Texarkana’s Tree #1, the high “like” getter among this year’s Festival of Trees entries. Thank you for your Christmas spirit of sharing with those who need our help!
Please note that the horse-drawn-carriage rides have been withdrawn by the provider for lack of ridership. Maybe next year, after the great momentum building in #downtowntexarkana has grown further…
