Always popular Texas Gatorfest is Friday through Sunday

It’s time - Texas Gatorfest gets under way tomorrow (Friday) and continues through Sunday at Fort Anahuac Park. Texas Gatorfest gates open tomorrow at 6 p.m. The night’s live musical entertainment features Bayou Roux, Brian Jack and the Zydeco Gamblers plus the always popular Wayne Toups and ZyDeCajun. That’s’ Friday. Then, on Saturday, gates open at 10 a.m. for the nationally famous Texas Alligator Roundup. That’s the premier event of Texas Gatorfest. This annual celebrated festival coincides with alligator season in Texas where licensed hunters are competing for some $4,500 in cash prizes. The roundup weighs in an average of 10 percent of all the alligators harvested from the wild in Texas annually. Some previous year’s gators have measured more than 13 feet long. There’s also an alligator education tent with live smaller gators provided by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. As always, there’s carnival rides, lots of food and merchandise vendors, karaoke, plus never to be forgotten airboat rides in the marsh. On Saturday, live entertainment features six bands, including 4 Barrel Ramblers, Randall King, John Bauman plus Dustin Sonnier and The Wanted. The final two bands Saturday night are William Clark Green and Aaron Watson. The 2018 Texas Gatorfest will conclude Sunday with gates opening at noon. The day’s musical performers are the Larry Tillery Band, The Fab 5 and Bag of Donuts. That’s this year’s three-day Texas Gatorfest – Friday through Sunday at Fort Anahuac Park in Anahuac. Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under with those younger than 5 getting in free. Senior citizens and active military personnel are also $5. Festival parking is $10. There will be directional signs to parking at the airport with shuttle buses running frequently throughout the festival. For more information, go online to texasgatorfest.com. As always – see you later alligator.
