Hispanic Heritage Month begins



Please see the first in our series this week on Hispanic Heritage Month. Our theme this year is “Traditions”.

For the next four weeks we will feature different traditions – whether they are event or food related – in the Living Section of our paper.

Also, make plans to attend the Pleasanton Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Market Days on Saturday, October 19. Food and artsy vendors plus lots of entertainment will fill the day and the downtown Main Street in Pleasanton.


Hispanic recipes needed

Speaking of Hispanic Heritage month, we will be featuring Hispanic family recipes. Send your recipe with a bit of background information to Jessica Machado at jmachado@pleasantonexpress.com or bring it by our office.

We will be featuring them during Hispanic Heritage month, now through October 16.

Cowboy Homecoming coming, too!

In a little over a month, Cowboy Homecoming will be celebrated. Mark your calendars for October 25 & 26.

The move to cooler times was a success and now the location is changing this year as well.

Wanting to bring back bullriding and other arena events, the Chamber of Commerce is excited to move the event to the Atascosa County Showbarn and Arena.

Who will be queen?

See who will be crowned Cowboy Homecoming Queen on Friday, October 25. Vying for queen, court and duchess are: Emily Chapa, Cheyenne Fernandez, Hayley Herschap, Rebecca Huizar, Oriana Ortiz and Mikayla Posas. A team roping will be held afterwards as well as concerts by The Palacios Brothers and LC Rocks.

The bullride, among other arena events, will take place on Saturday.

An IBCA barbeque cookoff will be held on Friday and Saturday plus Gabe Garcia, Casey Donahew and Easton Corbin rounding out the concert series.

Keep your eyes out on the pages of the Pleasanton Express for more Cowboy Homecoming coverage!

Our special issue will hit the stands on October 23.
