The Texarkana USA Chamber of Commerce will host a Small Business Expo on August 22 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM on the corner of 3rd Street and Texas Boulevard in Texarkana, TX. There will be 35 vendor booths, food trucks, police and fire vehicles for kids to see, a “Chill Out Zone,” a bounce house, and the Kicker truck will be playing music. The Chill Out Zone will have fans and free water.
“Our goal for the Small Business Expo is to connect businesses with each other and the community in a fun environment,” said Mike Malone, president of the Texarkana USA Chamber of Commerce. “The main focus of the Chamber is to be a driver of growth, a trusted source, and a place to network,” continued Malone. “Without our small and medium-sized businesses our community is not the same. We have to support each other, and the Small Business Expo is the perfect place to do that.”
Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun at the Small Business Expo this Thursday. “If you’re looking to network, grab a bite to eat, or entertain the kids then make your way downtown Thursday evening,” says Natalie Haywood, events and communications director at the Chamber of Commerce. “We’ve had a great response to the event, so we’re really looking forward to the community showing up and showing out,” she shares.
“Without our vendors and the support of the City of Texarkana, TX, Ledwell, Townsquare Media and our other sponsors listed below, this event wouldn’t be possible,” says Haywood. “It’s truly amazing to see a community come together to support each other. Everyone has been very excited to be involved in this event,” Haywood explains.
