October is stacked with local events


There’s no shortage of things to do around Austin County next month.

October means it’s time for the annual county fair, which includes a parade through downtown Bellville at 10 a.m. Oct. 11, barbecue cook-off, rodeo, bull riding, live entertainment, petting zoo and livestock show. A full schedule is available at austincountyfair.com.

The parade theme is “Nothin’ but fun at 91” and will feature grand marshals Leroy and Pat Vornkahl.

This year marks the 91st anniversary of the Austin County Fair. A new fair queen will be designated and spectators will flock from across the state for food and fun. This year’s event is expanding to a full 10-days chock full of entertainment. The music lineup includes Moe Bandy, Jake Worthington, Rodney Atkins, Tracy Byrd, Aaron Watson and local favorite Mason Marek.

Other upcoming events include the following:

National Night Out

National Night Out is planned for 5 to 10 p.m. Oct.6 at Levine Park, 410 Main St., Sealy. Hosted by the Sealy Police Department, the event will feature a movie in the park – “Coco” – and a chance to get to know neighbors and emergency responders.

“It is designed to allow our citizens easy access to their community leaders and police officers,” according to SPD officials. “We strive to provide the best service possible and look forward to meeting each one of you. If you’re concerned about something in your neighborhood, looking for safety tips and ideas, or wish to meet your local government officials, this is the perfect opportunity. We will host a free movie in the park complete with live music, food, drinks, popcorn, glow bracelets and more.”

Bras for a Cause

Bras for a Cause will be held at the Saddleback Saloon Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. All proceeds from the auctioned bras go to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Breast Care with Memorial Hermann-Katy. For more information contact Karen Lopez at 979-885-3562 or publisher@sealynews.com.
