Bluebonnet Festival a success

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who came out for this year’s Bluebonnet festival! From the Bluebonnet committee, the city staff, the NMDD staff, Natalia Fire Department, and Sheriff Randy Brown and his deputies for their aid with traffic control, and to all of the parade entries. I would like to give a special thanks to Mr. Rene Garcia, for the loan of his trailer (again) for a band stand, and to Mr. Josh Edge for the loan of the Portable Structure, which housed all the bands while they played. I owe a special thank you to the sponsors! Without them, none of this would be possible without their support! But most of all, a huge thank you to all who showed up to first watch the parade, to those who purchased from the vendors.
We are already looking forward to next year’s Bluebonnet festival, as it will be a three day event. It will begin Saturday April 6, 2024, with the parade, and culminate on Monday April 8th, with completion of the “Total Solar Eclipse”! There will be more information to follow on both.
