Mount Pleasant Texas is a small town located in Northeast Texas. This town has all kinds of community gatherings like we have our annual local fair which has a farm animal contest, an academic, best homemade jam and best picture contest. During the fair you can ride the carnival rides, eat from the variety of concessions stands and just enjoy yourself. We also have country festivals 6 times a year with live music, food courts and a lot dancing. Also, we have our annual Christmas parade at our downtown with all the beautiful floats. This town has thought me that you can have fun year around within our community.
Mount Pleasant is a great place to grow up and raise a family. While town is small, the people and culture is really divers. Mount Pleasant offers big city amenities with a small town feel. Additionally, the town is growing with new businesses and industry coming into the town with the recent construction of the loop. Overall, Mount Pleasant is where life happens and memories are made.
