Let's Go

Featured: Tinkerbash

Tinkerwhat? Yes, there's a new word for New Years Eve celebrations in Palestine. Tinker, as in tinkering with scientific exhibits at the Curious Museum, plus bash, as in throwing a party for adults 21 and older at Palestine's Knights of Columbus Hall. Guests will enjoy a catered dinner, tinker activities, live music by Midnight Highway, dancing, and a glass of champagne at midnight.

Proceeds will benefit the Curious Museum, which is in need of repairs and new exhibits. Purchase tickets online at visitpalestine.com/tinkerbash, or contact the Visitor Center at 903-723-3014 for information.
