Now that it's finally November, the only thing that's on our minds is a delicious Thanksgiving meal. Fortunately, Texans don't just have leftovers to look forward to once Thanksgiving is over, because a massive fried chicken and hot air balloon festival near Austin is coming the next day. The festival is just a short drive to Fredericksburg, and it will have fried chicken, beer, balloon rides, and much more.
On Friday, November 29, the Fredericksburg Fried Chicken, Beer and Balloon festival will kick off at 4 p.m. and ends the following day on Saturday, November 30 at 8 p.m. If there's one thing Texas does better than any other state, it's chicken. While you're chowing down on some of the South's best, you'll be able to wash it down with some tasty beer and watch hot air balloons fill the sky.
Tickets range in price from $0 to $130, depending on the package and perks you're interested in having. They sell out every year, so the hosts highly recommend getting yours sooner rather than later. You can enter the even for free between 4-8pm on Friday only. There will be a charge of $25 at other times.
Whether you just want to experience hot air balloons, an exclusive lounging area, endless fried chicken, or all of the above, there's a ticket package for everyone. Their official Eventbrite page has all the details, so get your wallets ready!
This month is filled with tons of fun things to do in Texas, and this festival is just the cherry on top of it all. If you love fried chicken, live music, beer, and hot air balloons then you should definitely plan on being there. We won't have any problem knowing what we're thankful for this year!
