Bluebonnets are the official Texas flower. The thing is they aren't always easy to find in the city. Thankfully just a few minutes outside of Dallas, on April 12 to the 14 Ennis will host a Bluebonnet Festival. The festival will showcase everything the bluebonnets have to offer.
The three-day festival will is free and will include more than 40 miles of wildflowers. During the festival, visitors will be able to enjoy a wine tour where you can walk through the fields of flowers as you wine sample. There will also be rock climbing, bounce houses and bluebonnet themed souvenirs.
Of course, no Texas event would be complete without live Texas music, food trucks and plenty of drinks. On the second day of the festival, there will be a farmers market for anyone looking to buy local goods.
You can also bring your furry friends to the festival but all dog must stay on a leash.
You are always welcome to take pictures on the trail and upon your arrival, you will receive a map to ensure you don't get lost. On the north side of the trail, you will be able to see horses. If you're lucky enough they might even let you take a picture of them.
The festival will be open from noon to 9 p.m. on Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Ennis is home to the official Bluebonnet trail that is open from the entire month of April. The trail in Ennis was made the official bluebonnet trail of Texas back in 1997.
