Tejas headliner cancels
Former Texas Ranger Joaquin Jackson, who was to have been one of the headline authors, appearing at Rockdale’s March 1-2 Tejas Festival won’t be appearing after all.
Jackson advised Tejas organizers during the week that he had been booked to appear at another event that weekend by his late wife, a booking he only became aware of recently.
But there will still be plenty of events March 1 at local schools and March 2 in downtown.
Authors will speak at the library and I&GN Depot-Museum, there will be a play at the Kay Theatre, food vendors and music at Wolf Park and a plant exchange at the historic Henry Garage.
And, of course, the giant car-motorcycle show will unreel on North Ackerman and Milam Streets.
A special section detailing all the Tejas activities will be published next week in The Reporter.
