However, we will continue inside with the remainder of our celebratory festivities and open the Beaumont Civic Center at 9:30 a.m. for fabulous rhythm and blues singer Yvonne Washington and her band, prior to the bedazzling Richard Simmons show and picnic lunch, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Head to Port Arthur to Gulfway Drive. Go one block past Ninth Avenue across from the old Sabine bank to Amuny’s Liquor & Deli.
