Editor's note: This article has been updated to correct the start time of the fun-raiser for the Grayson County Welfare Board at 903 Brewers. The event will begin Saturday at 6 p.m.
While there may be some precipitation this weekend, hopefully it will not rain on this weekend's events in Texoma. It's time again for the annual Hispanic Heritage Festival in Texoma. Also this weekend, Doyle Lawson and Max Stalling will be in concert. If none of those events fill the next three days for you, also this weekend there will be a biker scavenger hunt and a fundraiser for a local child welfare support agency. Here are five events to get excited about this weekend.
1. Celebrating Hispanic Heritage
The Hispanic Heritage Council of Texoma will be putting on the 21st Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival on the Sherman Municipal Building lawn Saturday. The festival will be held from 2-7 p.m. and there will be a concert from 7-9 p.m., as well as food, art, music and a children's area.

5. Scavenger hunt
On Saturday there will be a lot of bikers traveling around Texoma participating in the Texoma Harley Davidson scavenger hunt. Go by the store located at 4000 N. U.S. Highway 75 in Sherman to register and pick up a Texoma H-D koozie to hold the pictures. Bikes are due back at the store by noon for scoring, lunch and prizes. Free food will be available starting at 11 a.m. Happy hour starts at 4 p.m. In the event of rain, the scavenger hunt can be done using alternative transportation.
