Festival on the Square is approaching its 26th year, and is looking for your help! The committee has a solid group of leadership each year that have helped the event grow and change with the times.

I have been a part of the committee for the past two years in different capacities, and it has been a wonderful experience. The bands are great, the atmosphere in downtown is unlike anything else, and the volunteers pull it all together.

If you've ever wanted to be a part of this awesome event, now is your oppportunity! Contact the Heart of Tyler/Main Street office via their website or by phone at 903.593.6905 to learn how you can get involved.

Two years ago, I invited some of my best girl friends to help volunteer at the event, and in honor of Throwback Thursday, here we are with Curtis Grimes and a couple of members of his band.
