It's not quite springtime in East Texas, but the weather has sure made it feel that way this past week. This weekend isn't going to be any different. Lots of fair weather, sunshine, and temperatures expected to mid-70s all weekend long.

Other signs that Spring is just around the corner, the daffodils are in bloom along with many tulips, and some trees are starting to show signs they're sprouting their leaves, which means one thing, pollen season is right around the corner too!

This might be a great weekend to start prepping those flower beds, do some spring cleaning around the house, go through the garage and closet gather those items you no longer find useful, and prep for a garage sale.

If none of that sounds appealing to you, you can always be a part of the events that are happening around East Texas.

Here's a look at this weekend's event happening across East Texas.
