Sherman -- It was a celebration of jazz, art, street performers, great food and much more February 22 as downtown Sherman was swathed in green, gold and purple for the Red River Mardi Gras & Jazz Festival.

Many of the festival-goers patiently waited in line for crawfish gumbo before taking in the sights spread over two blocks in Sherman.

The Sherman Jazz Museum was a crowd favorite as the historic building hosted live jazz performances, a variety of jazz collections and the amazing artwork of Pat Pierce.
