Celebrate Syrup, Wine, Art, Cars & Oil Derricks This Weekend In East Texas
One of the biggest festivals in East Texas is wrapping up the festival season this weekend as we get ready for the holiday rush. Downtown Henderson is the place to be this weekend because Henderson is hosting the annual Heritage Syrup Festival.
The Heritage Syrup Festival takes over downtown Henderson with demonstrations, vendors, live music, food vendors, car and truck shows and so much more. You should plan on being there the entire time! When you're done there head up Hwy. 259 to downtown Kilgore for some holiday fun and the lighting of the oil derricks!
Here's a look at this weekend's events in East Texas.
