Were you able to come to the Taste of Texarkana? My husband and I, along with our friends Jake and AnaLyse Raney, arrived at about 5:30 p.m. to the Taste of Texarkana.

I heard many people comment on the organization put in place for the event. The ticket taking process was streamlined, bistro style tables were added as well as strategically placed trash receptacles throughout the arena.

Let's not forget to mention the wonderfully prepared foods, desserts and beverages that I tasted Tuesday night. I loved the lemon cupcakes from Munchables Bakery while Jathan loved the grits from Pop's Place on Highway 67. We both really enjoyed our side of pork from Naaman's, which is located at 5309 North Stateline.

So if you didn't get a chance to come in 2013 make plans to come next year. All proceeds go to the Harvest Texarkana Regional Food Bank which puts the monetary donations to good use!
