September in Llano

Pow wow inviteCampers will enjoy the unique events coming to the Hill Country in the coming weeks.

Tickets to the Llano River Chuck Wagon Cook-off go on sale at the Llano Visitor Center in Llano starting Sept. 3. This annual event in October is always a sell-out, so get yours quickly.

The cook-off will take place on the banks of the beautiful Llano River in Badu Park, while everyone wanting to explore the wonders of an historic downtown and county courthouse are welcome for the festivities of the Llano Heritage Days Festival on the square. These events have been expanded to offer something for everyone to enjoy during the three days.
The main event is the public meal served straight from the wagons at high noon on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the 57th Annual Tiha Summer Pow Wow is coming to  Robinson Park in Llano on Sept. 14. This daylong event (it starts at 10 a.m. and concludes around 9 p.m.) features a vendor show, business meeting, Gourd Dancing and the Grand Entry. Cheyenne Ashton from Kyle, Texas, will be the lead lady dancer and Crow’s Nest and Mo Pair will be the head singer. The event is sponsored by the Texas Indian Hobbyist Association.

The general public is welcome to attend the event and watch the competition on any of the scheduled contest days. While this event is not an air show, the aerobatic sequences flown in the competition are interesting to watch as pilots demonstrate their ability to fly the maneuvers precisely and safely. Aerobatic aircraft will be on static display throughout the contest.

The competition is being sponsored by Austin chapter 107 of the International Aerobatic Club, as well as local area businesses. Approximately 20 to 25 aerobatic pilots from all over Texas and surrounding states are expected to participate in the event.
