Easter themed events took place in the Golden Triangle

Whether on the ground or in the air, the Texans took part in multiple events over the Easter weekend.

JASPER, Texas — The holidays aren’t until Sunday, but the festivities started a day early. Many Easter-themed events have taken place around the Golden Triangle.

In Jasper, Saturday was the last day of the Magnolia Festival. Children and adults lined a parade route along South Margaret Avenue to watch the floats pass.

After the parade, festival-goers enjoyed carnival rides, food, live music, and shopping at area businesses. One of the companies present was Cookie Co by Mia.

The company, owned by Mia Baker, is gaining traction throughout southeast Texas. Baker grew up in Kirbyville but said she never fails to return to her hometown.

“I have a lot of support here,” Baker said. “Like I said, that’s probably about 90% of my clientele. So, you know, seeing people and beckoning them and having them help me sell has been really, really good.

Baker said she comes to Magnolia Festival every year and there is always a lot of support from the community.

At the Beaumont Municipal Airport, pilots and community members had a day filled with excitement. The pilots held their first “Fly-In” of 2022.

The event features food trucks, vintage cars, vintage airplanes, rides, and gas discounts for pilots. The airport has shared information about a flight simulator that will be available later in 2022.

The other events were not only fun but also educational.

An Easter egg hunt was held at the John Jay French Museum in Beaumont. The event was held to celebrate the holiday and help community members connect with Beaumont’s history.
