Llano Heritage Weekend Approaches

Chuck Wagon Cook-off festivities in past years.

Chuck Wagon Cook-off festivities in past years at Badu Park in Llano, Texas.

Get your tickets now for the annual Llano River Chuck Wagon Cook-off, one of the highlights of Llano Heritage Weekend, Oct. 18-20 in Llano.

Starting in 2005, and each year since, a group of chuck wagon enthusiasts get together at Badu Park on the banks of the Llano River in Llano and go back in time to an era when the West was settled. These enthusiasts use traditional cooking methods from that era, wear traditional dress and experience traditional neighborly fun as they compete for prizes in a number of categories.

We’ll talk about the weekend in future blogs but for now, be sure to get your tickets to the public meal, which is served promptly at high noon on Oct. 19. Get your tickets through the Llano Chamber of Commerce, www.llanochamber.org, or call  (325) 247-5354.
