Break out your best hat, plan to bake something sweet, perfect your poker face, dust off your dancing boots and pack your running shoes: the Uvalde Honey Festival is days away.
The two-day event, set Friday and Saturday, is scheduled to coincide with Four Square Friday, the monthly event when downtown shops open for late-night shopping, and there will be live music and a street dance.
Four Square Friday takes place from 6-9 p.m.
There will be a poker run from 6-8 p.m. The $5 buy-in per round will begin at the Uvalde Grand Opera House, and players will need to visit Four Square Friday-participating stores to collect chips.
The hive jive street dance is scheduled from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and the poker run winner will be announced at the dance. The street dance will take place on the downtown plaza and include music, lawn games, drinks and snacks.
Judging for the Bee in your Bonnet hat contest will begin at 9 p.m. Fabulous and flashy hats will be celebrated and three judges will decide first-, second-, and third-place winners. Contestants should report to the plaza fountain between 8:45 and 8:59 p.m.
