Floresville Opry Spectacular- Celebrate July 4
How can you beat two for the price of one? You can’t! So take advantage of celebrating your freedom and enjoying a night of talented entertainers at the Floresville Opry Spectacular Wednesday, July 4, from 5-8:30 p.m. in the Floresville Event Center at 600 S.H. 97 E. in Floresville.
Doors will open at 4 p.m. for those who simply can’t wait to listen and dance to the good ol’ country music they’ve come to love. Attendees will not want to miss the finale, as the evening will end with a spectacular fireworks show.
Some new talent to the lineup will be Wade Benson Landry, a well-known, three-decade, professional fiddle player from Branson, Mo., bringing his versatility of traditional country, Cajun, big band, and Western swing music. Landry will perform hits such as, “Jambalaya” and “Diggy Liggy Lo,” to name but two. Joining him on stage will be his talented wife, Teresa, who will deliver some emotional renditions of hits by some of country music’s best-known female artists, such as “Burning Memories” and “Once A Day.” Together, they will belt out “You’re Runnin’ Wild.”
Other popular performers will include Del Kubena singing “Cattle Call,” Diane Farley and Mary Sue Collins performing “I’ll Be Your San Antonio Rose,” Leon Payne Jr. singing “I Love You Because,” Bill Barrington performing “The Kind of Love I Can’t Forget,” and so many more.
Also enjoy other local talent, such as house band “Playin’ to Win,” Johnny Houfpauir, Sally Carlson, Carroll Sammons, and Robert Remschel, who will be on hand to provide classical country music. Attendees will not be able to get enough of these great performances.
General admission tickets are $7, and can be purchased at the Wilson County Public Library or from any Wilson County Historical Society member. Reserved tables on the dance floor, which seat 10, are available for $100 at the Wilson County News office in Floresville.
Proceeds will benefit the Wilson County Historical Society.
