Calling all Can Am Spyder enthusiasts! Come for this 3-day event where you can travel through the back roads of the Texas Hill Country. There is so much to see!

Antique Tractor Pull (October 28, 2017)
The Ag Heritage Museum in Boerne is hosting the Annual Tractor Pull! There will be approximately 40 tractors on display, all of which were built before 1960. Some tractors even date back to the 1930’s! This is a perfect photo-op for you and the kids! For anyone who has never been to a tractor pull before, the idea is to hitch a “sled” with a weight ranging anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000 pounds on the back of a tractor and pull it as far as it will go! As the trailered weight is pulled down the track, it moves and rolls, making it more difficult for the tractor to tug along. Who will be the tractor pulling champ this year? Attend and find out! There will be a small food booth taking donations, or opt for bringing your own picnic and lawn chairs. Settle into the designated spectator seating area and get ready to cheer! Children 12 and under are free and there is a $5 entry fee for adults.
All British Car Day (October 28, 2017)
The British are coming! One day of nothing but British cars ranging from classics to new models out on Boerne’s Main Plaza. For those registering, cars will be categorized into classes based on age and brand. There will also be a People’s Choice ballot for attendants and registrants! The British Car Show is an excellent way for those with a common interest in cars manufactured in Britain to congregate. The interest started when vehicle production in the U.S. was stopped during WWII, and the demand for automobiles increased; therefore, cars manufactured in Britain were shipped here for sale, and the trend began. Registrants are asked to sign up any time before 10AM on the day of the show. Prizes and plaques will be given out at 2PM. Stop into any one of your favorite local, downtown restaurants for a bite to eat during the festivities!
This Boerne favorite is held twice a month in the spring-fall seasons! Reminiscent of old Americana street parties, you can enjoy classic cars and hot rods, as well as burgers, shakes, music, and so much more. This event is open to families of all ages and even hosts a Halloween Bash on October 28th!
