Enjoy the fun of the fair this weekend

 

The Bluebonnet Fest, an annual, highly anticipated La Vernia event sponsored by the La Vernia Lions Club, is here and has numerous fun-filled activities lined up.

The fest begins with the “Armband Night” on Friday, May 20, from 6-9 p.m. in the La Vernia City Park, where kids can enjoy carnival rides all night for $10. There will also be karaoke, and vendor and food booths. So attendees do not have to wait in line, armbands are available for purchase until Thursday, May 19, at 5 p.m. at The La Vernia News office, 112 E. Chihuahua St. in La Vernia.

The parade will begin on Saturday, May 21, at 10 a.m., featuring the La Vernia Mighty Bear Band and newly crowned Miss La Vernia and her court, who will lead the crowd to the park. The parade starts at the high school, proceeds north on F.M. 775, then north on U.S. 87, looping into the city park by the Finch Funeral Chapel.

There is free admission into the park all day Saturday for Bluebonnet Fest.

Once there, the kids can enjoy carnival rides, the adventure of the Choo-Choo train, free petting zoo, and free entertainment, including “The Magic of Cody Sanders.” Cody, 17, is a professional magician from Adkins who performs across Texas at resorts, conventions, and more, and has even performed in Las Vegas. His act is fun and family-friendly.

Attendees can also enjoy refreshments, such as cotton candy and funnel cakes, shopping at the many vendor booths, a live auction, and the numerous antique cars that will be on display.

The day will end with live music and dance provided by Texas Country and Southern rock band, Travis Schultz and the “Rutmakers,” from 5-7 p.m.

The band hails from “San Antonio and surrounding back roads,” according to its Facebook page. The members play a variety of traditional country music, as well as “Texas music,” also known as “Americana.” They cover material by such artists as Ray Price, Johnny Cash, Moe Bandy, Merle Haggard, and Hank Williams, and they like the music of Stoney LaRue, Robert Earl Keen, and the “Southern Strangers,” to name a few.

The ever-popular Clint Taft & the “Buck Wild Band” will close down Bluebonnet Fest, playing from 7-11 p.m. The high-energy band has played venues all over the Lone Star State. One of the hottest acts on the Texas dance-hall circuit with its blend of current and classic country, rock, and various other styles, the band has opened for acts such as Deryl Dodd, Jason Allen, and Cory Morrow. Catch the band in La Vernia Saturday night!
