LA County Fair

We had a fantastic time at the LA County Fair and the thing we will remember the most is the people we met during this event. The state motto of Texas is “Friendship” and we definitely made some new friends in Southern California. Guests enjoyed “Ride the Texas Waterways” in our virtual-reality kayaks since there aren’t many places to kayak in Pomona. With temperatures reaching well into the 100s, visitors said the only thing that would have made the kayaks better was if you actually got sprayed with real water to cool off. I guess they’ll just have to schedule a trip to Texas for the real thing!

At our LA County Fair stop, we were also introduced to Tje Austin – a musician from Austin. He treated fair-goers every night to a free show at the Texas on Tour Entertainment Stage. Tje is a talented young up-and-coming artist who performs original songs and puts his own unique spin on R&B classics. We had several visitors come back night after night just to catch Tje’s performances. Tje will be joining us for the remainder of our tour, so if you can make it out I strongly encourage it.

Well friends, another Texas on Tour event has wrapped up and now we are up, up, and away to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, NM. I really hope to see you there!
