East Texas’ Top 10 Things to Do This Weekend
It's been one heck of a week for Texas. If you're taking a break from helping your fellow Texan, you're probably looking to spend some quality time with your friends and family. There's nothing like a disaster to give you perspective on what's important in life.
So whether you're staying at home watching movies together, going to the circus in Tyler - or you and your buddies are looking to hit the mud trails in Jacksonville followed by some great Texas music, we've got you covered in the list below.
The circus is coming to Tyler this weekend, including three rings of family fun! Catch the elephants and tigers, aerial acrobatics and see the 'Jordan World Circus' act. Kids will also have the chance to ride certain animals. Online tickets are already sold, but you can buy at the venue.
The circus is in town Saturday through Monday. Here are the showtimes:
- Saturday: 3 & 7 pm
- Sunday: 1:30 & 5 pm
- Monday: 1:30 & 5 pm
It's probably going to get pretty muddy this weekend, so why not take advantage with an epic mud run on an ATV in Jacksonville. Added bonus: Zane Williams and Jason Cassidy are playing sets at night!
- Zane Williams - 8:30 pm
- Jason Cassidy - 10:30 pm

A new month is ahead of us, which means Canton's famous First Monday Trade Days is back. Their event page boasts 'cutting-edge home furnishings, antiques and collectibles that can't be found anywhere'. First Monday Trade Days dates back to over 150 years ago when the market was used to trade animals.
Each day's event begins at 9 am.
Try some of your local brewery's current on-the-market beers or maybe some of their limited/experimental brews this Saturday accompanied with food and music.
The first 250 drinking adults to arrive will get a limited edition True Vine glass. So bring your dog and your family and enjoy the outdoors (if it rains, it will be rescheduled). For more information check out their event page.
Ahhhh can you feel it in the air? It's football season. Let's celebrate the way we we're supposed to. Good friends, good beer, and good grub.
Craft and Trade Show is moving to Lindale where y'all can find handmade crafts, antiques, canned foods, produce and more. There will also be live music and entertainment for the day. Coe out and be part of something local!
This Saturday enjoy the day at a family and dog-friendly place - the Rose City Farmers Market.
Produce, herbs, wood oven breads, pastries and granola, jams, pickles, locally roasted coffee, cheese, artists and artisans, live music, and yoga on the terrace 8:30-9:30.
Shopping and mimosas at multiple shops in Deep Ellum? That sounds fun. Basically walk the streets, enjoy the music and mimosas, eat at the restaurants - and you'll have Monday off so no worries on sipping a little too much.
Upon check-in, guest will receive a souvenir glass, map, and wristband. It's $15 online and no other purchase necessary to enjoy the event and mimosas.
