Old Town Day in Sutherland Springs will feature food, music
Participants wave to the crowd during a previous year’s parade in Sutherland Springs. This year’s parade will start at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a barbecue dinner, live entertainment, contests, and more.
The Sutherland Springs Community Association will host its 24th annual Old Town Day celebration Saturday, Oct. 27.
Kicking off events will be the coronation of the Old Town Day royalty, set for Sunday, Oct. 21, at 3 p.m. in the Sutherland Springs Community Building, located on the corner of Fourth and 14th streets in Old Town Sutherland Springs. This event is open to the public.
The new royal court will make its public debut in a parade Oct. 27, starting at 11 a.m.
Enjoy entertainment by DRM Productions, “Lonesome Louie,” Nina Moore, and “Cinco,” as well as a star turn with Mrs. Central Texas, Cynthia Hinojosa, as Tina Turner. Music starts just after the parade on the streets of Sutherland Springs, on U.S. 87 just south of La Vernia.
In addition to music, festival entertainment will include a baked foods contest, with entries due by 10 a.m.; games from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., a silent auction closing at 5 p.m., and a horseshoe tournament at 3 p.m. Browse and buy from an array of vendor and food booths.
Enjoy barbecued chicken and sausage plates, served from 11 a.m. Presale tickets for the dinner are $6; meals on the day will cost $7.
Kids can enter the children’s costume contest, with prizes for the scariest, most creative, and prettiest. Register at the parade booth by 10 a.m.
Proceeds from the day’s festivities will benefit the Sutherland Springs Community Building Remodeling Fund.
