East Texas Weekend Events Include A Haunted House, Shopping, Mardi Gras & Live Music
So who's gonna win Super Bowl LVIII this weekend? The Kansas City Chiefs or San Francisco 49ers? This is the final weekend for NFL football for the season. There will be lots of Super Bowl watching parties happening and a lot of gambling on squares and mobile devices, although gambling is illegal in Texas. Good luck to your favorite team and enjoy the commercials and halftime show too!
Before the Super Bowl on Sunday, there are quite a few things to take part in around East Texas this weekend, including a Valentine's haunted house!
