KENEDY – Kenedy Chamber of Commerce officials are happy to report that the move of Kenedy Bluebonnet Days this year back to the downtown area was a tremendous success.

On behalf of the chamber, Executive Director Kelsey Yeater expressed thanks to everyone who participated in the parade, cookoff, car and motorcycle show and all the other Bluebonnet Days events.

“We couldn’t have made this event such a success without the help of each and every person and business that helped,” Yeater said.

Local residents and visitors enjoyed music, food, drinks, arts and crafts, kids zone fun area and “blue sky” clear weather Saturday helped make the event fun for visitors of all ages.
