Starting on April 8th, 2017, the city of Lufkin will sponsor what they're calling "Main Street Market Days.

They are hoping for this monthly event to happen each second Saturday and promises great shopping deals, live music, and dining opportunities.

The city will block off S. First St. for that entire day so vendors downtown can show off their merchandise

I think this is a cool way to get more people downtown, especially since Pokemon GO petered out.

Start marking your calendars for the second Saturday of each month, and make it a point to visit downtown Lufkin and experience everything they have to offer.

Visit the City of Lufkin website to learn about all the great things going on in the coming days that will help mold the city of Lufkin into its full potential. We'll see you out there!
