By Holley Nees - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – The 18th annual Downtown Hoedown is only two weeks away.

Organizers want your family to join-in on all the fun, and don't forget about the pet parade and strut your stroller parade this year.

You can enjoy all-day entertainment, arts and crafts vendors, and the giant slide returns this year!

"The wrestling has returned and my favorite, I guess I would have to say, would be the barbeque contest, we're going to have a barbeque cook-off this year," said Lufkin Main Street Director Barbara Thompson.

The event starts at 10 a.m. on the 17th. If you want to set up a vendor booth you can get an application at Lufkin City Hall in the Main Street Lufkin office or you can call 633-0205.
