Featured Event: El Camino Marketplace

El Camino Marketplace will feature vintage crafts, clothing, and jewelry, live music, and fun activities this afternoon in Oxbow Hollow behind Oxbow Pies in Old Downton Palestine. The event has been organized by Caitlin Brax, owner of Alex & Afton, a vintage clothing boutique in Tyler.

The family-friendly event, complete with bounce houses and a clown bike timed race, will complement today's bicycle race, El Camino: The Texas Gravel Adventure, which begins at 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. today. The 105-mile, 65-mile, and 25-mile bicycle races will wind through the gravel back roads of Anderson and Houston counties, so avoid the cyclists on your way to Old Town Palestine.
