The Texarkana Museums System has some wonderful programs this year as we celebrate Texarkana's Sesquicentennial. A program coming up this month is no exception. It's all about hairstyles back in the early days of Texarkana.
Some Texans might remember our States sesquicentennial celebration, it happened back in 1986. Houston threw a big-ole-party at the San Jacinto Battleground under the monument, Willie Nelson played there, Louise Mandrell, Asleep At The Wheel and more. I was there too, live broadcasting from the event at the first radio station I ever worked for. Guess what Texarkana? Your turn is in 2023, and plans
2023 will be the 150 year anniversary of Texarkana's founding. The city is planning a year-long celebration with #txk150. But first things first, how the heck do you say the word "Sesquicentennial"?
