What’s one thing to be treasured about a town with enthusiastic, motivated people? They get the job done, and they do it for anyone in need. The thing about the Texarkana community is that they’re always willing to come together for a good cause, and they always make it a good time. For five years now, Texarkana’s Alzheimer’s Alliance Tri-State Area has put together an elegant, but fun filled festival at Spring Lake Park- Jive for Five Twice as Fine Wine! As usual, the festival took place on the first Saturday of May this year (May 4th) and proved to be an artist, foodie, and wine enthusiast day of delight, with all proceeds benefiting Alzheimer’s Alliance.
The greatest thing about the wine festival is its aptitude for bringing different tastes together and introducing new elements to the people of town. This year, 26 wineries from all over Texas and a series of local restaurants and creatives wowed the crowd with their selections of art. Supporting and experiencing our communities talents is a necessary goal anyone should have. For the town to thrive, the individuals must thrive and that’s why events like this one are so important – not to mention that all of the earnings went to a good cause in support of those local friends.
