Texas, Arkansas: Texarkana twins invited to photo shoot
TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) - Twins and other twosomes have been invited to dress alike and take part in a "twice as nice" photo shoot meant to promote both Southern cities named Texarkana.
The Texarkana Gazette reports it's an effort by Texarkana, Texas, and neighboring Texarkana, Arkansas, to encourage downtown development through historic preservation.
Officials with nonprofit Main Street Texarkana, made up of citizens from both states, say locals are encouraged to show up at noon Wednesday in front of the downtown courthouse and post office. The federal building, at 500 N. State Line Ave., is located in both states.
The area includes Photographer's Island, where people are encouraged to snap images on the shared state line marked with a red, white and blue sign.
Members of the Texarkana Twins baseball team are also participating.
