Tuesday night was a great night for kids here in East Texas because they got to stay up a little later than usual and go door-to-door trick-or-treating as they were dressed up in their favorite Halloween costumes. Now that the fun is over it's time to look forward to the weekend and what all there is to do around the area.

If you like to window shop and shopping, in general, this is going to be a good weekend for you. The weather is going to cooperate. It's expected to be sunny with some clouds and highs in the low- to mid-70s. So if you head outside to a trade days event or hit up the carnival it's going to be extremely comfortable.

Here's a look at this weekend's events in East Texas.
