Cat Springs Agricultural Society has been holding a community barbecue out back behind the German dance hall for over 150 years.
This is the oldest barbecue tradition in Texas.
Here’s a message from Marilyn at Cat Springs Dance Hall for those who may want to come and take photos before the festivities begin:
“Actually the guys will be BBQing out back early in the day and the helicopter will be there in the afternoon and some drinks will be available about 2:00, but the actual meal will not begin until 5:00 p.m. The auction starts at 6:30. In the auction we will have some homemade quilts and baked goods and there are always some interesting things. The cake walk will begin as soon as there are enough people through eating to play.
The free dance is from 8:30 until 12:30 in the evening. The band is called The Hit Men and they play a mix of some polka, country and a little bit of everything if you ask for it. Bring a crowd with you. There will be booths to browse through and some childrens games with a bounce house at no charge.
So come on out if you can. We’d love to have you.”
