Nacogdoches' 300th birthday bash set for Thursday night

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - All year long, Nacogdoches has been celebrating its Tricentennial.

On Thursday night, a climactic Nac 300 birthday bash will take place.

It will be a fun way to say thank you to all who participated in various Nac 300 birthday events.

"This is our birthday party banquet that we're doing," said Scott Sosebee, a Nac 300 committee member.  "A celebration for the whole city of Nacogdoches to come. It's not a history lecture. It's not a history talk. We're having songs, some birthday cake, a fine meal, a cash bar, and finally a big Happy Birthday, everybody sings Happy Birthday to Nacogdoches."

The Nac 300 Birthday Celebration is Thursday at the SFA Grand Ballroom. A meet and greet is scheduled for at 6 p.m. Dinner and entertainment begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets are at the Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Proceeds go to Friends of Historic Nacogdoches and the East Texas Historical Association.
