Historic Main Street Association plans special ‘revitalization’ event this weekend

MARBLE FALLS —  The Marble Falls Historic Main Street Association hopes several special upcoming events will help provide an economic spark to local businesses.

As part of several upcoming "downtown Marble Falls revitalization events," the Marble Falls Historic Main Street Association will sponsor an open air festival Saturday.

The event set for 8 a.m.-7 p.m. March 20 throughout the historic Main Street area will include food and merchandise vendors from all over Texas. Free live entertainment and store special sales will be featured during the event, according to organizers.

The Association plans to attract locals and visitors to Main Street with more programs happening the third Saturday of each month during upcoming weeks. One such event is the "Lone Star Adult Soap Box Derby" and street dance set for June 18-20.

Also during upcoming weeks, the Association plans to sponsor the "Meet on Main" event 5-8 p.m. the first Thursday of each month. That will include local artists and farmers during the "Homegrown and Homemade Farmer’s Market."
