Upcoming Events

Kerry Fellows, cooking at the 2014 World s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at NRG Park. In 2013 his team, Across the Track Cook-off Team, took overall Grand Champion.

Saturday night would be a good time to head over to Fredericksburg for their annual night out in old freddy festival. They will have cold beverages, delicious food, goat roping, a “42” domino tourney, a BBQ cook-off, a chili cook-off, Wiener Dog races, and a big dance at night. During the day when it is stinking hot you can head over to the two city pools that will be open to cool down, or you could go to the nearby LBJ State park where there is another pool. Have fun.

MEMEPRIAL DAY WEEKEND AT SOUTH LLANO RIVER STATE PARK

Inks Lake is the place to be this weekend if you are looking for something to do with your kids. There will be free fishing lessons in the morning and then a star party at night. During the heat of the afternoon you can go for a swim.

Plenty of heat and no rain. That is what is heading our way for the weekend and the near future. One way to beat this incessant heat is to go tubing, and this week’s pick is Comal Tubes in New Braunfels. You can rent a tube from them for $20 and they will shuttle you down to the river for a 2.5-3 hour float trip. It is gorgeous and refreshing. Remember not to take any cans on the Comal or you could get a ticket. Just sayin.
