After the races that day there will be a big dance for everyone to enjoy. Sunday is when the finals and award presentations will be held. Have fun.

The rains should be gone by later today and the weekend is looking like perfect weather to be outside. If you are looking for something to do, consider heading over to the Tube Chute in New Braunfels Saturday morning around 10. That is when the famous cardboard box boating extravaganza will be held. Afterwards, you could head over to Gruene and get a bite to eat down by the river. Have fun.

The season will be behind us soon, so now is the time to get out and attend as many mud bug festivals as possible. The big one this weekend is over at New Braunfels at the County Fair Grounds. The music will be by Will Hoge, Highway Hypnosis, The Lawless, and there will be Zydeco music of course. There also will be a Gumbo Cook-Off, a 5K Run that you should feel free to skip, a Crawfish Eating Contest, the obligatory Washer Tournament for people old enough to remember watching the Honeymooners live on TV, and much more. Have fun.

If you like crawdads you might want to head over to the Robinson Park in Llano on Saturday. They are going to have a big crawfish boil, beverages, music, dancing and other activities for you to enjoy. Have fun.

Sunday would be the time to take dogs over to the park in New Braunfels. That is when park staff will allow pooches in the pool. One day only at Landa Pool. Don’t miss it.

If you want to learn the basics about kayak paddling you should think about heading over to Blanco State Park Saturday morning. That is when they will be holding free lessons. Rain should be gone by then if the weather forecasters know what they are talking about.

Tethered hot air balloon rides will be available at Horseshoe Bend this Saturday. Just sayin.

At 11 this morning that would be a good time to have a friend call you to say they are taking a surprise trip to visit you and will be in around 1. That way you will have to skip out on work to go enjoy this fantastic weather. Go now before it gets ridiculously hot.
