From great live music from some awesome local bands to the big Dowton Texarkana Live event you will find 7 awesome things to do this weekend in Texarkana.

1. Dowtown Live. Come to downtown Texarkana and experience our thriving downtown arts and entertainment district. You can also see the progress on the 'Open Alley'. This is what the organizers had to say about this event:

During the May Downtown Live! event, stroll the newly-paved alley behind the north side of Broad Street connecting State Line Avenue with Kress Gap, & join a soft-launch of the proposed Activated Alley TXK, an outdoor public space sheltered by the charming historical brick walls of downtown Texarkana’s storied past.
