Catch some good old storytelling at Storyfest out in George West,TX on Saturday November 5th

Everyone likes a good story and the more embellished the better. So if you happen to be out hunting in south Texas next weekend be sure to swing on by the quiet little town of George West, TX for its 23rd Annual Storyfest. Some of the state’s best storytellers will be in town to entertain and spin yarn. You’ll be sure to enjoy stories ranging from Texas folklore to tid bits of history to ghost stories to full out homegrown tall tales and more. There’s even a lying contest – the Texas State Liar’s Contest – and DeCee Cornish, the Texas State Champion Liar, will be back to fervently defend his title. Admission to the festival is FREE all day long on Saturday. Along with with all the storytelling the annual festival also features live music, a classic car show, living history exhibits, the “Little Red Wagon” parade, a quilt show, a street fair filled with craft vendors, and a lively Street Dance featuring Texas tunes. Admission to the Street Dance on Saturday evening (9pm-12am)  is $10 at the door.
