JLord: north Texas, south Texas - it's all Texas. I'm not the committee type, but I think I have a pretty good idea of what draws a crowd. I know people who paid $30 to see two of the acts lined up for the event. They are coming to see the headliners wearing tennies, sandals, boots, . . . whatever.
Well, I DO hope to go. I don't have boots.[the last time I had on boots, it was booties] I am the kind of person that has fun wherever I go. Being outside and music in the air...FREE!!! I will give it a chance! No BAH HUMBUG from me.
Furgot Won mure thing.....Is the "Former" Head of Security gunna b dare?
Gat dang it!!! whur is my udder boot?
Wow!!! Park & Ride - I so can't wait!!! I am taking vacation days for this event. I saw $$$$ on the billboards and heard boots stomping on the radio ads all the way in San Antonio TX. I am not here for a long time but here for a good time Victoria!!!!!!
I'll be there with boots on!!! Can't wait, and I'm bringing friends and family from out of town. Great job, Victoria. If the smaller towns can have festivals, etc. you can too!!!!
Was Pepper busy?
Here's an idea for a small festival that Victoria can host, it could be fun, and the surrounding counties could get involved......
This was in the Advocate a couple of days ago....
"13-year-old Inez boy shoots what he calls a CHUPACABRA"

CHUPACABRA RACES (pushing or dragging, dead or alive cabras would be allowed)CHUPACABRA CHUNKINGCHUPACABRA LOOK ALIKECHUPACABRA COOK OFFCHUPACABRA HUNTCHUPACABRA ART CONTESTBEST DRESSED CHUPACABRAWORST DRESSED CHUPACABRA
IF YOU HAVE ANYMORE IDEAS, POST THEM.1318
I can hardly wait to see the VicAd front page the next day. Will tell us how much we loved id or what a fantastic event we missed. Either way there will be nothing but "super", "great" and "historic".
@TxEx....on your the three below....1) that is the best response you have? and 2) only if He came during dinner and@GOP....funny
TxEx: The three below would complain about the second coming of the Messiah.
Not me, I helped put him the White House
Riverboat, sounds like a committe defense. He made the charts, nowhere near the top. The song is funny if you are from the area. So much for tourism. On being popular in north Texas.......yeah this is south Texas. The boots campaign has been a disaster. Everyone I talk to that is not from Victoria laughs at it. I think it is really funny how all these boot makers are being brought into Victoria. If we are "boot city" shouldn't they all be from here?
Why is everyone complaining about this? Just be happy at least Victoria is trying to boost something. If your not happy with it form your own committee and start something else. I think it will be fun although I don't like country music.
I am unable to enlighten you. You probably kind of sort of know why.
My apologies, I did not see the regional.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for bringing in class entertainment to Victoria but, what I see for this bootfest is sponsorship by one of the beer distributorships and we will make this another alcohol induced party, sure we will have something for families stuck somewhere in the corner but alcohol is where it's at.
Another thing is the venue, sure the downtown square and the park are good places to have small festivals but if you really want to have an outstanding concert/festival Victoria must have a venue to accommodate such an event.....come on powers that be, look around at the surrounding counties, look at their venues.....we are so deep in the hole that we need to look up to look down......SPEAK UP VICTORIA. We want UofH to grow, we want to bring in more companies, we want more things to do in Victoria, well in order for that to happen we need more places to stay and more things to see and do.....SPEAK UP VICTORIA...Call your elected officials city and county and tell them what you think.1318
Curious how many people from out of town go to this Boot Fest!!! They paid for billboards and radio commercials here in San Antonio. When I hear them I so just laugh to myself. Sure people we are going to get "Er" boots and dance line our way to Victoria Texas.. lol
Enlighten us, JB.
BTW: I wrote regional, not national.
Bighorn, I think it would be kind of tough to fund a Kenny Chesney, or Jason Aldean headliner.
Watch what happens to bootfest. Same as everything else in Victoria. People will go there but they will also leave because of one single thing. You can't write about that problem because no one wants to believe it's a problems.Get ready!!!
Did you listen to the song in the link? The album with that song made it to the Top Country Albums charts. Josh Abbot is well-known in north Texas where he started in Lubbock, like Mac Davis and Buddy Holly. He's a great choice to headline an event, even if you don't like the concept of the event itself.
No offense, but who is he? To draw a crowd, a recognized name would get the job done. Plenty of regional acts that are easily more attractive than this one.
Macaroni Fest reincarnated.
yea this is lame! they blocked me from there facebook page for stating the truth! cause we all know how victoria is boot city usa!!! hahahahaha i just peed from laughing so hard! pay me 200 thousand to put a red x in "victoria tx." now thats marketing i bet that firm took 5 mins to come up with that! i need to go work for them i could do that all day long! headed to victoria? bring your boots! haha what a joke!

Sounds like market days and a few extras....not impressed.
Have to agree. Though would participate in poker tournament. Assuming it is run legally where all entry fees go to payouts
Not a country fan or critic of it, todays country music doesn't impress me one way or another. Needed google to tell me the first thing about him. Can't wait for victoria to put this silly era behind us.
