Pflugerville's Pfestival and Expo - A Great Turn Out Today

By
Real Estate Agent with Gaston & Sheehan Realty

Today was the Pflugerville Pfamily Pfestival & Expo and it could not have been a more perfect fall weather day for the event. The turn out was great and people really enjoyed all the happenings.

There was something for everyone including over 100 business and community organization exhibits and demonstrations featuring Classic car show, Travis County Star Flight and Texas National Guard helicopter displays, public safety displays, performances by local school, youth and church groups plus a lot more.  Oh, and plenty of food from some of Pflugerville's fine restaurants.

The Greater Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce hosts the Expo each year to showcase local businesses and community organization exhibits.  This year marked the 10 year event celebration. The theme for this years festival was ‘Celebrating Our Community Cultures' and celebrate we did.

I enjoyed visiting all the venue booths, making new friends and seeing so many familiar faces. Thanks for all who stopped by our Gaston & Sheehan Realty booth.

Here's me sporting my t-shirt of the unofficial Pflugerville slogan ‘between a rock and a weird place.' And the meaning behind this in case you don‘t know? Pflugerville is located between Round Rock and Austin - whose slogan is ‘Keep Austin Weird.'

My camera battery gave out early so I was only able to take a few pictures.

Pflugerville's DARE Vehicle (Drug Abse Resistance Education) DARE is a police officer-led series of lessons given in our school classrooms that teaches students good decision making skills to help them avoid high-risk drug behavior.  It's a great program, and I think every school should offer this.

Trey: It was a fun day.  Our local Chamber does a great job promoting local business in ways like this event.

Hi Jane:  Oh thanks for the compliment on the shirt!  We've adopted the slogan a couple years back and the city sells the shirts and bumper stickers with proceeds going toward improvements of Lake Pflugerville.

Interesting slogan. I've never thought of Pflugerville as being between Austin and Round Rock, but I always think of it as off to the side, but I guess if you're driving on the tollway, it would be in between...
