Bluebonnet Fest is almost here!
Miss La Vernia 2012 Jennifer Skrzycki begins her reign after being crowned May 11 in the La Vernia High School auditorium. She and her new court will make the first of many public appearances this Saturday in the Bluebonnet Fest Parade, which starts at the high school. Jennifer and the Miss La Vernia court will represent their community in parades and events across the region throughout the coming year.

Put on some comfy strolling shoes, take the family, and gear up for the much-anticipated 34th annual Bluebonnet Fest taking place Friday and Saturday, May 18-19, in the La Vernia City Park. The event is sponsored by the La Vernia Lions Club.

Friday’s festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with a carnival and an assortment of arts and crafts vendors and festival food booths you crave all year. A dance and live music in the pavilion by Jack Higginbotham will end the night from 7-11 p.m.

The festival fun will resume on Saturday at 9 a.m. with the carnival and festival booths. The newly crowned Miss La Vernia and her court will make their first public appearance as community ambassadors in a parade at 10 a.m. from the high school, onto F.M. 775, then U.S. 87, and ending at San Antonio Road. Ooh and ahh over the variety of floats from local and surrounding area businesses, youth organizations, and clubs.

Take the kids to the petting zoo and pony rides from 12-4 p.m. in the City Park and take in the live auction. Enjoy a free plant giveaway by Calvin Finch at 3 p.m. in the City Park Gazebo.

Attendees will not want to miss the South Texas Gunfighters, an “Old West” entertainment group from San Antonio, who will perform for the first time this year. Utilizing quick wit and audience participation, they liven up the crowd with comedy skits and plenty of smoke and noise. They will perform Saturday, at 1, 3, and 5 p.m. in the City Park.

Dance to a different beat Saturday night as Clint Taft and the “Buck Wild Band” perform live in the pavilion from 7-11 p.m.

All proceeds will be returned to the community in the form of scholarships for graduating high school seniors, food and monetary donations to the local food pantry, school supplies for needy students, monthly bingo at the local nursing home, and much more.
