Texas History Comes Alive near Lake Conroe KOA

Texas flagsBooming cannons, dramatic Texas Independence battle re-enactments, a Texian Army Tent Encampment and Native American dancers are among the highlights planned for the Texian Heritage Festival on Saturday, Oct. 19, in Montgomery.

This event will be staged at Fernland Historical Park, located just down Highway 105 from Lake Conroe KOA.

Montgomery is a logical place for this inaugural event as it is the birthplace of the Lone Star flag.

From everyday Civil War era dresses of Texas women to the most elaborate of uniforms and antebellum dresses and dozens of pioneer activities, the festival will piece together native history, explore the daily lives of early settlers on the frontier and capture a glimpse of the living history and culture of Texas during the 1800s. Other events include fun for kids of all ages, Frontier Children’s Activities, Shoot-Outs, Dutch Oven Cooking and a Chili Cook-Off.

These pioneer-themed events will be featured from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Admission is free.
