Upcoming Events

blanco state parkOnly a slight chance of rain this weekend and it is going to be hot so you might want to consider heading out to a swimming hole. This week’s pick is the beautiful Blanco State Park in Blanco. There are several shaded areas down by the water and it typically does not get real crowded at the park. The more secluded spots are the ones furthest from the gate. Photo from TPWD files.

chisholm trail winery stompWith the end of August comes the end of grape stomping season so if you want to go get a stained shirt head over to Chisholm Trail Winery on Saturday and join in the fun. There will be food and music as well. Have fun and don’t forget to get something to eat.

swift dropIf you want to go see thousands of Swifts enter their cistern roost for the evening, then you should head over to Jonestown on Saturday. That is when they will be throwing Swift Fest. There will be vendors and booths and food and drinks and music and then around dusk everyone goes to the cistern to watch the tornadic, swift drop. Darn sure worth watching at least once.
