Red Poppy Festival in Georgetown, Texas

Ok, I know what you’re thinking…”A festival that’s named after a flower?”  But, what a beautiful flower it is:

Every year, the city of Georgetown Texas celebrates the introduction of the Spring season and along with it, all of the beautiful flowers of the Hill Country landscape.  Georgetown, just happens to be the Red Poppy Capital of Texas.  If you love flowers, that’s a good thing.  If you only like flowers because you can give them to your wife when she’s mad at you, it’s still a good thing.  The Red Poppy Festival has something for everyone:  Lots of live music and performances; food (time to get your Kettle Corn!); a car show (for you non-flower enthusiasts); and ofcourse a parade.

This festival definitely has the kiddos in mind with lots of free entertainment being offered from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.  There will also be many local artists and crafts that will be showcased in the Red Poppy Marketplace.  If local art really appeals to you, check out the Williamson County Art Guild.  They have a Framers Gallery that starts the 1st Friday of every month and for the month of May, my friend Jason St. Peter will have his photography showcased.  Get a sneak preview of his gallery by clicking here!
