    The Fires of Easter: A Hill Country Tradition

    It was March of 1847, and the German Settlers of Gillespie County had just signed a peace treaty with the Comanche Indian tribe. The Comanches celebrated by setting large signal fires all around the surrounding hills of Fredericksburg, inadvertently scaring some of the townsfolk’s little ones. One creative mother soothed their fears by telling them the smoke was from the dye-pots of the Easter Bunny, who was busily dying eggs for the children to find in the morning. This young mother’s tale quickly spread among other children and adults, and eventually became legend. Settlers continued to light the fires to mark the anniversary of the peace treaty, which carries the distinction of being the only treaty in the U.S. to be honored without violation by either party. The tradition continues to this day, when the town of Fredericksburg honors both their German ancestors and their cultural traditions by lighting the Easter fires on Easter Eve of each year. To see the Easter Fires and experience more April events in Texas’ Hill country, book your reservation now.

    On Saturday, February 11, get ready to wrap your arms around your sweetie, and lots of other folks as well, when you kick up your heels at the 42nd Annual Hug-In and Valentine’s Ball. Held at the world-famous Luckenbach Dance Hall, the ball will feature Texas music legend Gary P. Nunn, along with The Powell Brothers.

    A native of Oklahoma, Nunn adopted Texas as his home state not long after his family moved to Brownfield. Soon afterward, he started his first band, and honed his skills until he moved to Austin in 1967. He became a force of the progressive country music movement, and played bass for such country icons as Willie Nelson, and Jerry Jeff Walker.

    Nunn soon established his own record label and music publishing company, and is still most widely known as the writer and singer of “London Homesick Blues,” also known as the theme song for PBS’ “Austin City Limits.”

    The Valentine’s Ball will be held from 9:00-11:45 p.m., and the doors will open at 8:00 p.m.

    Memorable icons of the American West come to life at the Museum of Western Art, in the form of Cowboys, Native American Indians, Mountain Men and more. Nestled in the midst of the Hill Country, the museum is one of Kerrville’s most famous attractions, and is dedicated to preserving, honoring, and promoting the heritage of the Old West through art.

    Included in the museum’s exhibits and permanent collection are paintings and sculptures from such notable artists as Roy Andersen, Oreland Joe, Fritz White, and Wayne Baize. The museum also houses authentic western artifacts and the ‘Journey West Children’s Gallery’: a hands-on display of prairie life on a wagon train, complete with a teepee, a covered wagon and period costumes.

    Along with special exhibits, an ‘Artist of the Month’ program, and a 4,000-volume research library, the museum frequently hosts lectures, workshops and other arts-educational events for adults and children alike.
