The smell of Mexican food cooking, a cool September breeze, and the steady, bass rhythm, beckoning you to the dance floor – it must be time for St. Anthony’s Fiesta. Celebrating its 103rd year, the festival draws enthusiastic crowds from all over Central Texas.
This year’s featured entertainers are Los Palominos, and Los AT Boyz on Friday Night, September 21st and Ruben Ramos and El Ritmo, on Saturday night, September 22nd. The music is outdoors and the dance floor accommodates a large appreciative crowd.
The environment is family friendly, with face painting, a photo booth, coin toss, putt putt golf, a book walk, cake walk, dart throw, and the ever popular basketball throw. Adults will enjoy the wine waltz.
If it gets hot, head into the church hall for air conditioning, dinner by the Guadalupanas, and the silent auction.
