Yes. There is such a thing as a Sweet Potato Festival in Texas and it is going on this weekend!
Last evening the festivities kicked off with some fun Mutton Bustin’ by the little cowboys and cowgirls ((SO FUN!)) and lots of food, vendors and activities winding up the evening with a bluegrass/gospel night in the band stand!
Golden has had it’s more than 15 minutes of fame --This celebration has been aired on The Oprah Winfrey Show twice, once on October 28, 2004 and January 26, 2005.
I found Golden, TX to be a very small town with a HUGE heart and awesome people and I had myself a Texas good ole time.
