If you haven’t already made plans to do so, now’s the time to get ready for the 67th annual Floresville Peanut Festival, planned for Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 6-9.

Most of the events will take place in downtown Floresville, around the historic Wilson County Courthouse square.

The week’s festivities kicked off with Goober Games for the kids on Oct. 4.

The fun really ramps up with the coronation of Queen Tunaep and King Reboog Thursday evening at 7 p.m. in the Wiley Seale Auditorium, where the 2011 Court of Mystical Magical Universe will show off their pageant finery.

The carnival opens Thursday at 5 p.m. and will continue through Saturday night. Wristband night will be Thursday; $15 gives festival-goers unlimited carnival fun until 11 p.m.

A Kiddie Parade through downtown, sponsored by the Women’s Service Organization, will keep things flowing on Friday at 6 p.m. Live music Friday will include “Los Banger Broz” and “Marcos Orozco y Rebelde.”

Saturday’s events begin at 8 a.m. with the second annual Goober Kids and 5K Fun Run, starting at The Beer Warehouse, located at 1302 S. Second St. Festivities continue at 10 a.m. with the festival parade, featuring floats of the Peanut Festival royalty, local and area organizations, bands, and more.

Stay after the parade for more carnival fun and visit the food and vendor booths. Make time at 2 p.m. as “Animal Planet” films an episode of “Rattlesnake Republic” as they try to set a world record for the most rattlesnakes in a sleeping bag with a person!

Entertainment Saturday will include gunfighters, the snake handlers, a petting zoo, pony rides, kids’ karaoke, and more. A washer tournament begins at 2 p.m. on C Street, with cash prizes available. Saturday’s musical entertainment will include April Hall, “Flashback,” the “Cody Robbins Band,” Bleu Edmondson, and the “Bart Crow Band.”

This year, the fun will continue through Sunday, with fun for all at the Floresville Event Center on S.H. 97 near the city’s River Park.

Events will include an International Chili Society chili cook-off, a menudo cook-off, and the Ranch Rodeo and team roping finals. Entertainment will also include the South Texas Gunfighters, AJ Snakes, mutton bustin’, and a horseshoe tournament. Access Sunday for grounds only is $5.

Enjoy more live music from featured acts such as the “JustCause” band, Justin van Sant, “Scott Wiggins Band,” and the “Josh Abbott Band.”
