So many exciting things go on in the Hill Country during summer time. You have the last few days of the folk festival going on until June 8th. The festival has been around for years and has many exciting crafts and activities for all ages, entertainment and performers that you’ll be glad you saw and heard, and Vendors that will make you put your money to good use. The folk festival is always an exciting way to spend some time of summer, and with that only being about 20 minutes from the Roddy Tree Ranch, you’d also have a peaceful and exciting place to stay.
Roddy Tree Ranch and Lazy Day Canteen offer great service and excellent entertainment on the weekends. The “U B the Star” Karaoke Contest is in full swing every Friday night. The Canteen opens at 6:30 PM with food & beverages and the singin’ cranks up about 8 PM. The first, second & third place finishers will be selected from 6 finalists Labor Day Weekend, with concert tickets, and vacations in Corpus Christi & at Roddy Tree on the line. Saturday evenings the “River Rats” rock the house and Sunday afternoons always brings the hardcore Western Swing fans out to do some boot scootin’ to Junior Pruneda & Friends! You never know who might show up to jam with Junior and the boys. No better great way to spend a Sunday, summer afternoon from 4-7 PM then with the “King of Western Swing”. Big entertainment also pops into the Roddy Tree, the “King of Tex-Mex Rock N Roll” Joe King Carrasco will be at the Canteen June 21st. Joe has been playing for decades and was introduced into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in 2002 and has always been a crowd pleasure.
When planning a stay at the Roddy Tree, it’s nice to know there are awesome towns and nearby attractions. Kerrville has the beautiful golf course, mall, and many parks. Fredricksburg, famous for its Enchanted Rock State Park, Cave Without a Name, and Main Street door-to-door shopping is always a good place to spend the day! Also located in Fred for the kids is a Mr. Gatti’s pizza place! Great fun. The town also holds the Nimitz Museum and the National Museum of the Pacific War. Boerne and San Antonio are less than an hour from the ranch. Both have exciting things to do, many family activities and many shopping areas as well as restaurants including; Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Sea World, River City Mall and of course The Alamo.
