The Crawfish Hole and Texas Syndicate BBQ will feature some favorite Southeast Texas cuisine. And the motorcycle club, Keepers of Chaos, is excited about the Axe Throw booth, plus there will be some local vendors on site for your shopping pleasure.

“As the event begins to wind down, the Southeast Texas Veterans Service Group will perform a 21 Gun Salute at 4 p.m. followed by the last band. We hope folks will come out and support the event and support our Veterans,” shared Woodcock.
