Gillespie County Fair

It’s time for the 135th Gillespie County Fair here in Fredericksburg! It is the oldest continuous county fair in Texas and it’s a big deal! The kids get a Friday off from school to attend the fair parade that travels slowly down Main Street with queens waving from floats, bands, drill teams, antique cars, tractors, and local business people smiling and waving from their service trucks. Folks of all ages are readying their jams, jellies, pies, crafts, needlework for entry into the fair, along with their prize garden produce, eggs, hay, and pecans. Each is hoping to win a blue ribbon. Last year, Fredericksburg Farms own Bo Morris won the grand prize with his jar of pickled peaches! Hmmmm, what will I enter this year?
