Downtown Amarillo is about to get even more on the fancier side. Nothing is better than getting a great mural on a blank wall that they already have. I mean let's fancy it up all we can.

I love driving downtown and noticing every time a new mural pops up. We had recently heard that Yolo's Restaurant in downtown was going to get a mural. It is all part of the Hoodoo Mural Festival that is going to be happening on October first.

The murals will start being painted in September and will be celebrated and shown off at the festival. I reached out to the folks at Hoodoo Mural to find out which other businesses we could expect to be on display.

Over the years they have provided great artwork on eleven different areas and they are not done. They have picked out several new areas that will get the star treatment in downtown Amarillo.

  • Amarillo National Bank - 510 S Polk Street
  • Amarillo National Bank - 600 S Fillmore
  • The Historic Plemons Building - 203 SW 8th Ave
  • Downtown Marriott - 724 S Polk
  • Yolo's Restaurant - 316 6th Ave
  • Amarillo National Bank - 418 S Tyler Street

The festival itself is going to be a fun time. It of course is a family fun event in downtown Amarillo. You will be able to check out the great work done to these murals by Triston Eaton, Drew Merritt, It's a Living, Rabi Malcolm Byers, Nate Smith, and some local Amarillo muralists.
