Wortham gearing up for annual Blues Fest

The Wortham Blues Festival is coming back to the historic streets of beautiful downtown Wortham Saturday, Sept. 14, and this year a car show will take place the same day.

This year’s festival will feature a line-up of sizzlin’ Texas Blues beginning at 5 p.m. and lasting until midnight.

The gates will open at 3 p.m., so festival-goers should come early in order to get a good spot to enjoy the music. There will be plenty of good food and drinks at the event; however, personal coolers will be permitted (no glass containers). Fans are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket.
