It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow and maybe the pressure’s on. As Waylon Jennings himself put it so eloquently in his 1977 hit, let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas!
“So baby let’s sell your diamond ring, buy some boots and faded jeans and go away” … to the 39th annual Hug-In and Valentine’s Ball, held at the famous Luckenbach Dance Hall February 14, 15, and 16.
Not only is this weekend one of the few occasions to camp out at Luckenbach, but the event features nighttime concerts by Texas songsters Dale Watson (Friday) and Gary P. Nunn ($20). Three-day passes cost $40 (including camping). On Sunday afternoon from 1-5, a free tribute to Johnny Cash will close out the party. And the hugs are free, too.
