Mexia area residents will want to make plans to attend a festival celebrating their town and its history on Saturday, April 2.
This is the third annual Mexia Boomtown History and Market Day, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at H-E-B Community Park, next to the Mexia H-E-B grocery store, 701 E. Milam.
H-E-B and Mexia Area Chamber of Commerce are co-hosting the event, which will be chock-full of fun activities for all ages. Admission is free, and there will be food available at the festival food court, also Mexican food and soft drinks.
A vendor village will offer all kinds of trinkets and treats for sale, as well as antiques, collectibles and crafts.
A live DJ will play music, and attendees may show their skill at karaoke in front of the crowd.
