Bindseil Park, “the Jewel of downtown Blanco” right by the Square is a beautiful inviting spot to enjoy. It is a place enjoyed by tourists and many of the residents of Blanco.
We are working real hard to have it in tip top condition for the Lavender Festival, which takes place in less than three weeks. On June 10,11 and 12, Blanco will be transformed into this wonderful festival for three days. 15,000–20,000 people will flock into Blanco for this event. Everyone tries to put their best foot forward. There will be over 100 vendors set up on the Courthouse grounds. Third and Pecan Streets are closed to accomodate this huge tent housing for Go Texan packaged food vendors, wine and beer vendors, etc. on Third Street, plus all kinds of food vendors on Pecan Street.
One of the favorite spots during this whole three days is what happens in Bindseil Park. The outdoor ampitheater becomes the center of entertainment with music by different bands for three days. People go and sit on the rock levels or on the ground to enjoy the music and soak up the shade and beauty of the Park.
We have lots of work still to be done in the Park and on the plants in pots, so if you have a couple of hours to help the next two Tuesday mornings we can sure use you. We want to make Blanco very proud of our Park. Come at 8:30am Tuesday morning ready to work with gloves, clippers,etc. We need you to help us Keep Blanco Beautiful.
P.S. Judy says she will be back with an article next week to give you more advice on what you should be doing on your plants,etc. for this time of year. She brought Bob home from the hospital this past weekend and he is recuperating nicely, but he said he knows he is going to get bored They appreciate everyones thoughts and prayers.
