The first night of the 22nd annual Texas State Forest Festival in Lufkin was a success. Wednesday night was KTRE Night At the forest festival. Anyone who brought three canned goods to the festival got a $5 discount off their carnival arm band.
The East Texas News team collected close to a thousand canned food items. All the canned goods will go to several charitable organizations including Buckner Family Place, the Christian Information Service Center, and Love, Inc. in Lufkin.
