Twice as Fine Texarkana Wine Festival Canceled For 2020
The Twice as Fine Texarkana Wine Festival benefitting the Alzheimer's Alliance of Texarkana has been canceled.
This unique festival gives wine lovers the chance to spend the day enjoying wine from many of Texas's best wineries, as well as food, art, and other specialty vendors. The festival has taken place in previous years at Spring Lake Park.
Board President of the Alzheimer's Alliance of Texarkana John Ross had this to say about the cancelation.
"The decision to cancel this event was not made lightly, however, it was made out of an abundance of caution during this time of uncertainty," The Board believes it is the best decision for the concern and safety of our community."
