Remembering Buda….that is the theme for First Thursday in downtown Buda. Not only will there be lots of food, music and great shopping at all the shops on Main Street on Sept. 6, there will also be a picture history of old Buda. Don’t miss this special attraction and learn a little something about the town you call home.
Buda’s Red Door, Salon One 12 and Raby ‘s Roots want everyone to know that they are really Alive After Five so be sure to drop by their shops.
Buda Grocery & Grill is also very much alive now after re-opening their doors to a new look. Stop by and see what they have done with the 100-year-old building that once housed only a grocery store. Much has changed and you will like what you see!
Memory Lane Antiques is celebrating in a big way with the side street closed for celebrating their 35 years in business. There will be foods, drinks and entertainment to mark the special occasion; don’t miss it.
Tons of folks enjoyed the “Sandoval” rodeo last Sunday and for the very first time, the event was held at the Civic Center in San Marcos.
Even more folks were on hand for the first annual Gunner Thames Memorial Rodeo in Wimberley last Saturday and Sunday. A good time was had by all…Plan to make the event next year. Proceeds from the two-day rodeo benefit the Gunner Thames Memorial Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to support local rodeo athletes, 4-H and FFA members and to raise crisis funds to help area youth.

The new street light poles are all up along the west side of Main Street downtown and look very nice, but where are the lights?
