Top 6 Things to See and do This Saturday at the 23rd Annual Texas Blueberry Festival in Nacogdoches

The Texas Blueberry Festival in downtown Nacogdoches has been a crowd favorite for years. Presented by Brookshire Brothers and produced by the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce, the numerous volunteers have been organizing one of the best (and tastiest!) community events for the people of Nacogdoches and surrounding areas. This year, there are a handful of FREE activities to do and amazing performances to see, so come on out to the 23rd Annual Texas Blueberry Festival this Saturday in downtown Nacogdoches from 8am to 4pm. Here's a list of my top six things to see and do on Saturday June 9th:



Blueberry Pancake Breakfast



A fan favorite every year, presented by Kiwanis Club. Enjoy some delicious blueberry pancakes starting at 8:00a.m. Better get them early for you and your family before they are gone! Cost is $5 per person.




CASA Kids Cupcake Contest and Decorating Booth



Entry fee is $5, and age categories are 4-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-12 years and 13-16 years. Child contestants can present 12 decorated cupcakes with blueberries as their inspiration. Contestants should be at the new CASA location (155 E Main St.) by 10:30am in order to be judged. Winners will receive a blueberry chef's hat and a first place ribbon.

During the festival, CASA will also be offering a Kid's Cupcake Decorating Booth. For $1 per cupcake, kids can decorate their dessert with different icing, toppings and of course, blueberries.

The Cowboy Max Show



Cowboy Max is back, and this year's show will be a family-friendly Wild West Melodrama – will he be able to save the Blueberry Farm and Sweet Betty Blue from the evil villain? Cheer for the hero, boo the villain and swoon at Sweet Betty Blue, in the air-conditioned CBTx Lobby on Main St. The free shows will begin at approximately 9:40am, 11:00am and 12:15pm.




Cool Zone and Kids Get Wet Water and Bounce Park



With temperatures expecting to hit 90 degrees on Saturday, you have to stop by the Nacogdoches Medical Center's water misters and cool fans on E Main St, across from the Main Street Stage. Another fun feature for kids is the Water and Bounce Park, sponsored by Citizens 1st Bank, Party 'N Things, Huntington State Bank and Nacogdoches Safe and Drug Free. Giant inflatables and inflatables with water features will be provided – individual tickets are $2, and arm bands are $10 per child.

Big Blue Murals and Vendor Booths



Come to the grassy banks of Banita Creek in Festival Plaza to complete the murals. Looking for artists short and tall! The fun art project is sponsored by Consolidated Communications and Beth Mazer, MD. In case you get hungry or thirsty, visit the 100+ booths of delicious food, ice cream and cold drinks. Don't forget to stop by the shops too for unique arts and crafts, too!

Blueberry Farm Pick and Peek



What's a blueberry festival without the blueberries? From 8am to 2:30pm, catch a free shuttle to pick your very own fresh blueberries from the bush for $1.50 per pound. You can reserve your shuttle time at the tent on Church St. Sponsored by The Blueberry Place, Brookshire Brothers, Tipton Ford, Pinecrest Children's Academy, Nacogdoches Medical Center, and Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital.
