The week-long 420 celebration in Texas
With the cannabis holiday falling during the middle of the week this year, 420 events around Texas are turning into a week-long celebration of sorts.
Kicking things off on Saturday, April 16 will be a rally in Waco, with music festivals happening in both Amarillo and Houston.
NORML of Waco will be holding a marijuana rally at the busiest intersection in town during lunch hour traffic. They’re expecting people from all over the state to be in attendance.
Moving on to the day of celebration, Wednesday will see a special production of Reefer Madness the Musical at the Art Centre Theatre in Plano. Amarillo Cannabis Culture NORML is having a banner drop, while San Antonio NORML is putting on a Music and Art Party. Houston NORML will again be tabling a music festival, The Generators Playground Presents 420.
DFW NORML will be taking a new approach this year. Instead of their annual 420 fundraiser, they’ll instead be coordinating banner drops at overpasses around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They hope to have at least three happening at the same time during the day.
Rounding out the week on Saturday, April 23 will be El Paso NORML’s Four20-Cannafest with food trucks, vendors, live music, and hookahs. On the opposite side of the state Nacogdoches NORML will be holding their annual Metal Fest.
For most of the state, there will be something for everyone. To see everything else that’s going on around Texas, have a look at the events page.
