The Taste of Texarkana is just days away. What can you expect at this event? A lot of great food in one place. The atmosphere is fun and you can taste and sip from places in Texarkana that you may have never been to.

Get your tickets now. You have a choice of purchasing VIP passes or general admission tickets to the 25th annual Taste of Texarkana on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the Four States Fair Entertainment Center from 5PM to 8PM.

The chicks at Three Chicks Feed, Seed and Cafe are always a lively bunch at the event. I visited with two of the three chicks this week to see what they have in store for their booth this year.

Grab your plate and enjoy local restaurants serving up samples of their menu, beverage distributors giving tastes of wine and beer as well as other vendors offering giveaways. This year's event already has 40 booths set to attend. Everyone has a good time, even the vendors get into the action.

This yearly event benefits Harvest Texarkana and helps build the food bank. Harvest Texarkana feeds many in our area throughout the entire year, not just around the holidays. The Taste of Texarkana is your opportunity to help fill the food bank and enjoy the best of what Texarkana has to offer.

New this year is the Harvest Marketplace where you can sample then purchase food to take home. Treasure Journeys will be in the marketplace. They are known as the home of TJ Texas Pecans, located in Roanoke, Texas.
