Morehouse May Madness
May 6, 2017 was an exciting day for downtown Bastrop. The streets were closed off around the courthouse for the first annual Morehouse May Madness Street Festival. There were many exciting things going on that day from a quilt show, a classic car exhibit, an herbal demonstration, a blacksmith demonstration, vendors with many unique items, delicious food, a kid zone area, a plant sale and a day full of music. A local artist was set up painting on the courthouse square and sold her painting by the end of the festival. The Morehouse Country Club sponsored a golf tournament, and there was a concert at the MAC that night. Plans are already being made for an even bigger event for next year’s street festival.
