This little festival in Florence, a small town in far north Williamson County, Texas, is a hoot. The focal point of the two-day festival is their parade, which took place this morning along East Main Street. For whatever reason, I missed my visit to Florence in 2016, but was happy to see a young buckaroo, Shooter, now 3, still coming with his dad. Shooter, in the opening photos, was having some trouble keeping that hat on his head. We do have some wind in Central Texas. Shooter made the day worthwhile. I liked the washer tournament, too. It was held next to one of Florence’s vintage structures. That building is totally covered with ivy …. poison ivy. Thankfully, the washer tournament officials posted warning signs. As someone with very sensitive skin, I stayed well away from it, as did the washer competitors. We have some interesting little burgs in Texas.
