May 13-14 Canton Balloon Fest

Quote

HotAirBalloonThe Canton Balloon Fest is ready to turn up the heat for this year’s Hot Air Balloon Festival. On May 13th & 14th, there will be activities for the whole family, right here in East Texas.

The Balloon Fest started at the Thompson Airfield in 2011, and due to the popularity of the event it moved onto the First Monday Grounds in Canton, Texas. The Canton Texas Visitor Bureau now hosts this two day annual event each May. The festival has grown and now includes vendors of all kinds, great food and art vendors showing off their pieces. Family fun activities are abundant with pony rides, bounce houses, climbing wall, car show and the very popular 5K glow run on Friday night. Each year the festival highlights great East Texas Music with a Battle of the Bands competition on Saturday and the event opens on Friday night each year with live music, Balloon Glow and all the vendors. The half marathon is Saturday morning and runners from all over come to compete in this officially sanctioned timed event.

Let’s talk balloons. The stars of the show are all the wonderful Balloons. Not only do they take off each night in a wonderful display of color they are competing in a sanctioned competition by the Balloon Federation of America each morning. The event does have tethered rides (during event) and full Balloon rides (reserved in advance) so make sure to save the 3rd weekend in May each year and enjoy this fantastic festival.

Quote

We all lead busy lives.  Even our children have busy lives.  Do you need to get away from it all?  Do your kids need to unplug from their devices?  The Schwanbecks prescribe “Relaxation Therapy” for you.  There is no better place to relax than at the lake.  There is something that happens to your brain when you cross that last lake bridge to the lake.  You start relaxing before you even pull in to the drive way.  The kids are excited to get there. The dog is excited because they are excited.  Grandma and Grandpa are looking forward to fishing.  Dad is excited to get in the boat.  Mom is looking forward to watching the amazing sunrise and sunset.  This is what Life is Like at Cedar Creek Lake.  Call us now and we can make this dream a reality for you and your family.

Here are a few pics of how our family has enjoyed the lake over the years.

Visit the Ranch of Dreams | The Fund for Animals

Quote

The Fund for Animals was founded in 1967 by prominent author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory. For more than four decades, in partnership with the Humane Society of the United States, The Fund for Animals has spearheaded significant events in the history of the animal protection movement by employing national advocacy campaigns, rescue operations and operating a network of world-famous animal care facilities like our Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.

About the Sanctuary

The Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is a world-renowned animal sanctuary in Murchison, Texas. The ranch was founded in 1979 by author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory. And in 2014 the board of directors of The Fund for Animals voted unanimously to memorialize its late, great founder by renaming its flagship animal sanctuary in his honor.

With over 1,400 acres, it is home to more than 800 domestic and exotic animals, many of whom have been rescued from near-death situations such as slaughterhouses, biomedical research laboratories and trophy hunting ranches. Others have been rescued from roadside zoos or were former victims of the exotic pet trade. Still others came from public lands where they were threatened with extermination by the federal government. Bison and cattle, horses and burros, antelope and apes, camels and tigers: all have permanent, safe homes at the ranch.

The sanctuary is not a zoo and is only open to the public for private, small, guided tours to respect the peace and privacy of the animals.
