I believe most people in Tyler, Longview, Marshall, Texas, and other East Texas cities wouldn't mind having a short week like we did this week. I believe we could get used to a four-day workweek so that we would have more time to ourselves and really enjoy our time off. We can dream right?

Until that new workweek structure gets implemented, we'll continue enjoying our two-day weekends here in East Texas. This weekend offers up quite a bit of fun and unique events for us all to take part in.

This weekend's highlights are:

  • Lake Tyler boat run
  • Free fishing Saturday
  • First Monday Trade Days
  • Tyler Parade of Homes

Along with several other activities that we can take part in and support local non-profits and charities at the same time.

Here's what's happening throughout East Texas this weekend:
