Just Around the Corner

Do you realize that Spring Ho is almost upon us. It's just three weeks before the annual Lampasas festival will be up and going, though it will be delayed by one day this time. Monday of Spring Ho week is the 4th of July, and this year the Spring Ho committee has opted to postpone the start of our festival until Tuesday. So-o, Spring Ho 2016 will kick off on Tuesday, July 5th, with the Opening Ceremony and Beauty Pageant taking place that night, taking the place of the Hayloft Party. All other events are pretty much the same.

The Chamber of Commerce is reminding runners to get registered for the annual Toughest 10K in Texas, 5K & 1 Mile Run that will take place on Spring Ho Saturday morning. The registration fee is $30 up to June 30th, then $35 after that. You can register online, or call the office at 512-556-5172.

They are also registering for the annual Hot as Hell BBQ Cook-off that will take place on Friday and Saturday of Spring Ho week. That will again take place at Cooper Springs and will see the pits in place on Friday and Saturday. Again, register with the Chamber on line or by phone.
