Maifest, Car Show, Saengerfest
Enjoy the pageantry of the 128th Maifest in Brenham. Royalty, parade, German stuff to eat, drink, and buy! Friday music by The Emotions. Saturday, polka on with Das Ist Lustig, Seven Dutchmen, and One Ton Country. Gene Hackemack will also be patrolling, I mean, strolling the area with his accordion. Lucky #13 - the 13th Annual SPJST Car Show in Seaton. Not only do you get to see cool cars, there's great music by Jerry Haisler, Billy Havlik, & friends. Shop, bid, eat. It's a full Saturday! Then enjoy some singing on Sunday with the 72nd Saengerfest - the annual get-together of the Texas German choirs. This year, Houston Saengerbund is hosting. It's quite a show with a finale of all 13 choirs. I think I can hear it from here!
