Back in New York we used to go a the Garlic Festival in Saugerties, NY, so it seems only logical to visit an Onionfest when you hear about it.
Entrance was $10 at the door or $6 when purchased online and printed yourself
Parking was well organized and within close walking distance to “the action”
There was a carshow with old and modern sportscar and plenty of unhealthy food option and the usual “flea market” merchandize.
The “highlight” was a Mexican Dancing horse presentation. Which to be honest made me feel a bit uneasy as to regards of the treatment of animals. YOu could see bloody scabs on the horse with lighter colors from where the spurs hits and some of the movement the horses did seemed very unnatural and the horses looked uncomfortable and in distress.
I am not a crazy PETA person but it just didnt feel/look right. But then alot of things in Texas dont. Just the fact that so many people chain their dogs outside no matter how hot or in this winter COLD it gets.
Well back to more joyful things… I pigged out… I started off with a spiral deep fried potato on a stick, then me and the wife shared ( 80/20 ) a blooming onion and we had some of these shaved ice things with “tigerblood”
I enjoyed this for days after.
the place was very children friendly not too loud and very spacious.
