What’s spooky like a Halloween trick??? Thoughts of traffic patterns changing?! YIKES!!

No worries, TxDOT and the construction contractor are working to make this transition a smooth one. Beginning the week of November 1, traffic will begin transitioning from the current Phase 1A to Phase 1B diagram below.

Stay up to date on the latest I-30 construction updates by visiting the TxDOT I-30 Widening Project Public Information page at:

If you're looking for a good, safe activity to entertain the kiddos on Halloween, THIS is it. Come see us at Spring Lake Park for a Drive-Thru Trunk-or-Treat!

Are you looking for a safe alternative to letting your kids go door-to-door on Saturday? If so, we have just the solution that you're looking for. 👍

We are again partnering with the Parks Department for Trunk or Treat in Spring Lake Park on Halloween afternoon. After the incredible response that we had last year, we knew that we had to figure out a way to do it for the kids again - and still be safe for everyone.

The solution that we came up with? A drive thru event. All traffic will enter the park from Mall Drive, drive around the block where the decorated vehicles will be park to collect your treats, and then exit back out that same way to Mall Drive.

To be sure that we can all social distance as we should be doing, we ask that everyone stay in your car as you go through the event. We will deliver the treats to you at your vehicle as you stop at each location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate anyone who simply walks up.

Would your club, church, or business like to be a part of this with us too? We currently have 22 groups signed up but have plenty of room for more. Contact the Parks Department at 903-798-3978 or send us a message here for more information if you're interested. :)

10/28/2020

We've gotten lots of calls asking "What are we doing about Halloween this year?" and that's a great question that needs to be addressed. So, we put together some suggestions that could help you celebrate Halloween safely this year, in light of COVID-19:

Make trick-or-treating safer--

Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.

Give out treats outdoors, if possible.
Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.
Wash hands before handling treats.

Wear a mask!
Make your cloth mask part of your costume.
A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask.
Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing

Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others for a long time.

Wash your hands
Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.

Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
(Parents: supervise young children using hand sanitizer.)

Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.

Stay tuned for more information over the next few days about how to celebrate Halloween safely! Thanks, Texarkana!

A Big Thank You to the Texarkana Emergency Center for the candy donation for this year's Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat at Spring Lake Park on October 31st.

We, along with the Texarkana Texas Parks Department, are busy getting ready for the 2nd annual Trunk or Treat in Spring Lake Park on October 31st. It will be a drive thru event this year because of COVID but will be every bit as much fun as last year.

A huge thanks to Dr. Matt Young and Brooke Marshall of Texarkana Emergency Center for donating candy to help make the event a big success again this year.

By the way... If you or your organization is interested in participating, send us a message and we’ll get you the information. We still have room for a few more trunk or treat vehicles. We promise that you’ll have as much fun as the kids. 😀

Gov. Greg Abbott addressed Texas today regarding further expanded reopening capacity in regions that are not in a COVID-19 Danger Zone. We fall into this expanded reopening category. Here's more information about what reopenings are allowed:

Retail, restaurants, offices, manufacturing facilities, museums and libraries, and gyms are allowed to reopen at 75% capacity beginning Monday, September 21, 2020.

Hospitals and healthcare facilities can begin elective procedures again immediately.

Nursing homes and extended care facilities will be allowed to reopen to essential caregiver visitors provided there is no COVID outbreak in the facility beginning September 24, 2020.

Bars are still not allowed to reopen at this time.

Please remember the governor's orders to wear masks and practice social distancing as we continue weathering this pandemic.

According to rally organizer Amber Cohen, “Over September 11th weekend Law Tigers Arkansas and Ladies In Leather Parade & Rally 2020 will pay tribute to the Twin Towers that fell in New York City on September 11, 2001. From the grounds of the Texarkana Texas Convention Center two huge blue beams of light will shine into the night sky in remembrance of the 2,977 people who died and more than 6,000 that were injured in the biggest terrorist attack this country has ever seen. Never Forget.”

The lights were brought in by Howie Wright, the Marketing Manager for Law Tigers Arkansas in Houston. Gunnery Sergeant Wright served ten tours overseas with the United States Marine Corp, and drove to San Antonio from Houston to pick up the lights and then drove them to Texarkana.

Display organizer, Madison Middleton, invited the public to attend the lighting ceremony at 8pm, September 11, 2020 at the Texarkana Texas Convention Center. Social distancing and masks will be required.
