Seven Things To Do During March!

Look at us! We have made it to March 2021! As we enter this glorious month, the official birth month of springtime, I am reminded of all that has to happen during the fall in order to circle us back to this time of new beginnings. The leaves must change colors and then wither to the ground in order for new ones to bloom and flourish and become the new and beautiful sights that decorate the season. We rarely think of the full process, and some of us consider fall and winter the ugly, dark, cold seasons, without fully realizing and appreciating that without them, the landscape would not have room for all the gorgeous new beauty of spiring! 

I think I can speak for everyone when I say we have been through some doom & gloom in the last twelve months. I believe the dark days we have trudged through are bringing us into our own season of gorgeous new beginnings! I imagine we aren’t much different from the surrounding nature. Sometimes we must change and wither and transform to make room for our springtime, and here we are! So, let’s enjoy this metamorphosis as we spend time with our loved ones at some of these awesome Texarkana events...

Inks and Board Event For Texarkana Animal Shelter at Body of Art—March 2

I know so many people who love to paint and for the life of me I just cannot understand WHY!!! It is hard, messy, and my art always ends up looking like a kindergartener’s probably would. 

But for you talented art lovers (or even untalented ones who still enjoy it... more power to you). On March 2, Body of Art, at 3003 Richmond Road, is teaming up with ColorHype TXK to host this special painting event. Half of all profits will benefit the Texarkana Animal Shelter! 

Even if you just want a night of fun, food and refreshments, hor d’oeuvres and drinks will be provided by Body of Art. According to their event page, “Inks and Board project is a fun way to create a stunning piece of contemporary art! The process is easy and fun! No prior experience required!” So maybe I will rethink coming to this event considering no prior experience is required... We’ll see. 

Ages 21-100 are welcome and it’s only $40 to register! Sign up at

Lucky Dog Productions Barrel Races at Four States Fairgrounds—March 5-7

Ah, the joys of growing up in a family who loves attending rodeos or other Four States Fairgrounds events. This was my childhood, so I have been to a barrel race or two, and they are actually not all bad. They can be quite fun. I complained way more back then than I should have. I secretly enjoyed them.

Lucky Dog Productions is hosting barrel races on March 5-7 and they would love for you to come out and enjoy the competition! You can find every detail you’re looking for on the Lucky Dog Productions Facebook page. Information on prices and times is all there! 

Now that I’m thinking about it… I wish I knew how to ride a horse.

It is the 4th annual Pull for Heroes Sporting Clay Tournament! All proceeds from entry fees, games and food go to the
Ark-La-Tex 100 Club, whose sole purpose is to “benefit local police and firefighters in Bowie and Miller counties.”

Lee Mathis and The Brutally Handsome For Two Nights at Whiskey River—March 19-20

If there is one thing Texarkana KNOWS how to do, it is bringing us the best live music! We all end up having a good time when we get to sit down, grab a refreshing drink and chill with friends while listening to a great band. Sign me up!

Now take everything I just said and multiply it by TWO, because Lee Mathis & The Brutally Handsome, a self-described “honkytonkin’ outlaw band” are going to be taking over Whiskey River bar in Texarkana for two whole nights—March 19 and March 20!

They will start at 10 pm and continue rocking until 1 am! That’s a commitment, Lee Mathis, that’s commitment! Visit the Lee Mathis & The Brutally Handsome Facebook page for more information on this exceptional band.

Honeycomb Tiles Fun at Redbone Magic Brewing Co.—March 24

I’ll just start with this... your first beer is on ColorHypeTXK! Say no more, right?! Haha… but really, this event sounds like so much fun! And not just because of the beer. 

“Alcohol inks are so fun and extremely easy to work with!,” according to the experts. This event is something a little different and cool, which makes me want to go!

A lot of you may wonder what the heck honeycomb tiles are! Here’s the explanation from this event’s page on “Each person will get 5 hexagon tiles to create with. Each one can be unique or created as a set… Feel free to come early or stay later to enjoy the brewery!” 

This is a fun, super creative event for ages 12 and up, and it is all going down on March 24. For more information, visit Redbone’s Facebook page, or contact them at 903-306-0822! Book sooner rather than later to avoid the event selling out! It is only $38 to sign up.
