Paul Gonzales photo.The Pride of Texas carnival is made an unexpected two week stop at the Bee County Expo Center grounds which began Friday, Jan. 13. The traveling show was headed to Mathis when, due to heavy rain conditions which washed out the fairgrounds, they had to cancel their engagement. Instead, the carnival settled in Beeville and began setting up. The Texas Trailriders will also be camping in the Expo Center grounds on Saturday evening so there will surely be something to do with the entire family.

Friend-Gay has won numerous awards all over North America and has been featured in many art and architecture publications. Her work will be available fore viewing from now until April 24.
