2021 Fall Festivals and Trunk or Treats in the Texarkana Area

Fall is in the air, which means a few things. It’s almost time for chili and soup season, cozy sweaters, candles that smell like pumpkin- and apple-themed treats, crisp leaves, cool nights… Well, we could go on and on about the joys of fall, especially after surviving weeks of 90-degree heat. But some of our favorite fall memories with our kids happen at fall festivals, carnivals, Halloween parties, trunk or treats, and other fall and harvest-themed events.

We’ve started building a list of all of the kid-friendly fall events in the Texarkana area. If you know of one that isn’t on our list, please let us know!
