25th Annual Denton Redbud Festival: Wrap-up Rdbd
Despite the stormy weather, this year's Denton Redbud Festival was a hit! On Saturday, April 21, Denton celebrated Arbor Day at the 25th Annual Denton Redbud Festival with local home and garden vendors, kid-friendly fun, festival foods, local musicians, workshops, free trees, and tons of plants! The Redbud Festival is KDB's largest community event, which makes it one of our favorites each year. It reminds us of how lucky we are to belong to such a wonderful community.
