This is the weekend many East Texans have been waiting for after enduring weeks of relentless heat and humidity making it feel like it's 107 to 115 degrees this past summer. Fall temperatures have finally arrived and we're definitely going to be out and about this weekend.

What's funny is, that some people will be breaking out the coats and jackets, especially on the way to church Sunday because temperatures are expected to be in the upper 40s to low 50s come sunrise on Sunday!

We're not complaining about it one bit because the weather is going to be great for these East Texas events.

Here's what's happening in East Texas this weekend:
