Poteet Strawberry Festival

Friday night on the news I heard that the Poteet Strawberry Festival was going on, it's a three day event in the nearby town of Poteet. I always seem to forget about it and never know when it is happening, the first and last time I went was in 98'.

As soon as the hubs got home, I asked him how to get there. He shocks me and says he will take me. The hubs going to an event..with all them PEOPLE! I was truly shocked! Well Saturday came and I was ready to go by noon. The hubs hadn't called yet to tell me to go on ahead, cause he had had time to think about his impulsive blurt and changed his mind. I was feeling pretty confident that he was actually going to go through with it. NOT! By 3pm he called with the news that I knew was going to happen. It was too late to go now. Needless to say I was very disappointed.

Saturday night bf said she would like to go (since she had never been) but was hesitant to confirm wether or not it was a planned trip. I had already made up my mind that if I had to, I would go by myself! I was going, no matter what! Thankfully she said yes the Sunday morning (the last day of the festival).
I was greeted by Mr. Strawberry

Bf was greeted by her favorite..Scratch offs!

Strawberry milk?

I love the ferris wheel

Very tempting on a hot day, but we were good and stuck to the free samples of Sierra Mist

We had to go the back roads to church to miss the bumper to bumper traffic from San Antonio on Hwy. 16. We rode on the Hermann Sons float about three years ago in the Saturday parade but didn't attend any of it this year. In August The Cowboy Homecoming will be here.
