Free fall fun in Beaumont

Written by , published October 3, 2014


Beaumont is celebrating the arrival of fall with a slate of events focusing on everything from dogs to bikes, horses, and fire safety.


Bring along Fido and head to the Julie Rodgers Theatre grounds DOGtober Fest on Saturday, Oct. 4. Compete for prizes by entering the Master/Dog Look-a-Like Contest or the Best Dressed Dog Contest. Get a bite to eat at BONE Appetit Food Court, look at BarkArt, and shop around at Neiman Barkus.

After your DOGtober Fest adventures, head over to the Fire Museum of Texas on Walnut Street for the annual Fire Prevention and Family Safety Festival where your kids can jump in a bounce house, enjoy refreshments, and watch safety demonstrations.

Oct. 17-19, the Texas Style Cool Autumn Nites Car, Truck, and Bike Show features everything from classics to muscle cars. Autos will fill the Crockett Street Entertainment District, and awards will be distributed in more than 50 categories.

On Nov. 1, ride, groom, and learn about horses at Wildcatter Weekend’s Yount-Lee Equestrian Day at the Spindletop/Gladys City Boomtown Museum. The event pays tribute to Pansy Yount, who, with her husband, owned American Saddlebreds in Beaumont during the 1930s. At 3 p.m., visitors can watch a re-enactment of the Lucas Gusher, the oil boom that financed the Younts’ equestrian hobbies.

The best news of all? Admission to these events is free. Enjoy!
