Tomball German Heritage Festival

Tomball, Texas did it up right! What’s my favorite 4-letter word???? Yes, “FREE”… admission!! It was time for the Tomball German Heritage Festival.  I had never been but saw it advertised so…off I went.  Tomball is just a short drive from Houston but has that small town vibe to it.  As we were expecting severe rains I think many people thought like me and decided to visit on Saturday, April 1st instead of trying their luck on Sunday – that said, it was a full house! The Tomball German Fest was quite well-organized and even had a free shuttle service at nearby large parking areas – I choose the Lone Star College parking lot and had an easy time of it.

Enjoy!

PS If you missed this one, not to worry…mark your calendars for their Tomball German Christmas Market on December 8-10, 2017

I was still in search of Apple Studel at this point as I saw someone with one and that’s all she wrote for me! 🙂
