NACOGDOCHES-LUFKIN TX (KTRE) - Spring is the time of year many East Texans get outdoors, rain or shine. The Lufkin Hoedown continued as planned. The Main Street event brought families out for all kinds of fun activities.
There were some clouds Saturday morning in Nacogdoches for the March of Dimes walk, but fortunately the rain held off. Moms, dads, and kids hiked two miles through the streets of Nacogdoches. They were walking to promote research for premature births.
The cloudy weather didn't stop people from coming out to the Stephen F. Austin State University plant sale. The spring sale attracts hundreds from all over East Texas and as far away as Houston and Dallas. The sale has grown to the size that proceeds can provide salaries for several positions at the SFA Arboretum.
