Buda, Texas – Fourth of July Festival
One summer, while living in Austin, I went to a July 4th Festival in Buda, Texas. Buda is a little town in the Hill Country outside of Austin. It was your basic festival; with live music, games, craft booths, BBQ and various other food and vendor booths. As my now ex boyfriend and I walked along enjoying the day, we saw a crowd gathering on the hill in front of us. So of course, we had to see what all the noise was about.
On further inspection, guess what we found? A Keg tossing contest! Yes folks, that is right …A keg tossing contest! Ha! Only in Texas. 😉 Of course my ex boyfriend had to take some pictures of this. Even though I am the one who takes pictures of everything, he grabbed the camera and started snapping. So as he photographed, I watched in amusement.
The way I understand it, the one who throws the keg the furthest wins. Maybe it was this guy? Or maybe not …
Well, anyway …there you have it …Keg Tossing in Buda; on one hot, sunny July 4th weekend. I never thought I would use these pictures and one day be blogging from AtoZ, with K being for Keg!
