The charismatic Texas town of Hillsboro is cooking up a great start to summer with two fun-filled events on the first weekend of June.
The festivities kick off on June 1 and 2 with a finger-lickin’ good time at Hillsboro’s first annual Steak Cook-Off which will include competitive cooking, wine tasting, arts and crafts, live music and a carnival. Steak dinner and wine tasting tickets are on sale now for $20.
And then – ahoy ye captains, first mates, scallywags and lassies, put on ye best pirate threads for a fancy festival: the Texas Pirate Festival on June 2 and 3 at 8581 State Highway 171.
Jack Sparrow enthusiasts will be in for a fun-filled treat with more than 100 vendors, swordplay, singing, dancing and games – without the fear of Davy Jones’ Locker.
The festival won’t cost visitors an arm, a leg or a lot of booty. However, missing this swashbuckling festival deserves a walk off the plank. Children ages six and under are free; six to 12 are $5; adults are $12.
