Taste of Tacoma

Wow! Looking back, we can sum up our weekend at the Taste of Tacoma in two words. "Action packed."  

When you enter Texas on Tour, it is a newly implemented rule that everyone give us a bonafide southern "yeehaw!" Little did we know enthusiastic Tacoma, Washington would be the home to some of our best "yeehaws" to date! 

Austin natives The Marshall Ford Swing Band provided our soundtrack for the weekend, letting visitors kick up their boots to some authentic Texas tunes. The band drew crowds at the festival and found plenty of new fans that toe-tapped along to the upbeat swing music.

Inside the ropes of Texas on Tour, we watched many of our new friends also enjoy the trivia, virtual kayaking tour, winning prizes and other Texas on Tour experiences, making memories that transformed them into lifelong Lone Star State fans. We hope everyone makes a stop in to TravelTex.com and that we see you again in Texas soon! Maybe even at our next stop at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver, July 6-8. See you there!
