It’s Springtime and festival season is well underway in Texas. Here are just a few of the great events happening across the state in the coming weeks:
The Tops In Texas Rodeo
Jacksonville | May 14 – 16
As you probably know by now, if it has to do with cowboys and horses, I’m in! That’s why I’ll be returning to Jacksonville for this exciting event! Besides the rodeo, there will be a parade, a chick wagon luncheon, a junior rodeo and kids’ day events. Website | Facebook
Tailwind Regional Balloon Fest
Canton | May 15 & 16
How would you like to soar up, up and away in a beautiful balloon? Or maybe you’d rather keep your feet on the ground and watch others do the soaring. Well, you can do both at the Tailwind Regional Balloon Fest in Canton. There will also be a classic car show, entertainment, exhibits, food, crafts, and also activities geared just for the kids, so bring them along! Check out the schedule of events. Facebook
