Fall is beginning to show it's colors in Llano, Texas!  We have cooler weather, beautiful decorations all over town, and the approaching Wild West Weekend. In addition to the Llano River Chuck Wagon Cook-off, western reenactments, Llano Red Top Jail Tours, vendors & music, we have added a trail ride from the courthouse to the John L Kuykendall Arena on Saturday, October 15 at 4:00pm!  Once at the arena, there is a mechanical bull to test your skills, a PRCA Xtreme Bull Riding, and dance with music by our very own the Riley Mountain Band.

The season's decorating contest is underway with local businesses, and if you want to be part of the judging give us a call here at the Chamber and we will get you signed up. The Thanksgiving & Christmas holiday seasons are soon to follow, so please consider later hours.  Also don't forget to plan for November 26:  Small Business Saturday this year!   The Llano Chamber will have a San Antonio Radio Station at Fuel Coffee House on Small Business Saturday broadcasting live to get the season started.

Thank you to all our followers & friends!  Happy fall, y'all!

Look out for cattle crossing and wagon wheels October 14-16 during the
Wild West Weekend to be held at various locations in town!

Vendors may apply at the Llano Chamber until October 10, when forms

Also... as you clean out your coat closets, please consider donating your gently used and outgrown coats & jackets to the Llano Junior Woman's Culture Club for the November Coats for Kids event held here at the Visitor Center.

This benefits our local youth and folks who can't always afford the extra necessities of the season.  - We thank you for the consideration!
