The tents have been taken down and the remaining merchandise has been packed. The trash has been bagged and the front gates are locked. The 2019 LavacaBerry Festival is in the history books.
The Lavaca Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Lavaca Berry Festival every year and has always done an amazing job. It’s not easy to put on a festival that represents your town. Some people are eager to criticize events but you’ll notice that they had no part in it’s planning or by participation. By every measure, this year’s festival was a success.
Almost fifty vendors attended this year’s festival. Food vendors sold eggrolls, authentic New Orleans gumbo, and bread pudding, BBQ, lemonades, and much more. Craft vendors were abundant! People had wooden signs, bows, wreaths, lap quilts, jellies, and too much to remember or mention. There were horse rides, bounce around, pie walks, games of all kinds. One local group even dragged an old car up with names printed on it and sold opportunities to whack the vehicle!
The weather was perfect! All week before was rainy, windy and cold but Saturday was an almost perfect day.
The Lavaca Area Chamber of Commerce brings many activities to town throughout the year but the Berry Festival is their largest fund-raiser. People are already calling to reserve booth spaces for next year’s festival.
Congratulations to the LACC for a great day and event!
