Are you nuts about nuts? We like to share with all of our road-tripping, traveling, bed and breakfast loving readers the great stuff happening around Texas, and coming up October 23-25, 2015 is the Pecan Fest Heritage Days in Seguin, TX.
If you aren’t familiar with Seguin, TX it is about 40 minutes east of San Antonio and 20 minutes south of New Braunfels, TX. It is a charming, quaint town with boatloads of history as it is one of the oldest towns in Texas, founded shortly after the Texas Revolution in 1836. The friendly community lets loose and “goes nuts” for Pecan Fest Heritage Days every year. It is a fun event for the whole family that celebrates the rural heritage of the community and honors the local pecan growers.
Some of the event highlights include:
