Let's Go asset

Featured Event: El Camino, The Texas Gravel Adventure

This week's homecoming events at Palestine High School will be big, but you'll also want to turn out for El Camino, The Texas Gravel Adventure, which begins 7 a.m. Saturday. About 350 cyclists – including many professionals from around the country – will grind through three different courses of dirt backroads from Palestine to Grapeland.

Registration for this year's race is closed, but everyone can join the fun, which includes live music at Pint and Barrel Drafthouse, a vendor market in Oxbow Hollow featuring foods, vintage clothing and crafts, bounce houses, and fun competitions for guests. For information, call 903-221-6233.
