Dennis and Mary have other commitments this year, so Catstream and I, Bruce and Roseann are hosting this years Rally.
Due to the terrible flood in May, the Park was devastated and will not reopen until August.
This year we decided to give back to the Park and to Blanco for giving us 12 consecutive years of a wonderful Christmas experience.
The chamber of commerce has invited us to participate in their Christmas Parade on Saturday evening by entering several richly decorated Airstreams.
Leading the Parade will be my 310 Motorhome with the director of the chambers of commerce in the Passenger seat. (Her late father used to restore vintage Airstreams)
We will also have a silent auction with Blanco State Park as the beneficiary, instead of our traditional "dirty" Santa gift exchange.
More info as we get closer.
We welcome any suggestions!

Best you can do is check with the online reservation system to see if any sites are or become available:

I want to kindly ask anyone that made reservations earlier this year and knows that they can not attend to please cancel their reservation. Unfortunately we do have many empty sites every year.
The alternative Campground Blanco Settlement is back up and running after being wiped out by the flood. Its just outside of Blanco
Blanco Settlement Home | Blanco Settlement 830-833-5115
We are planning on a Friday evening Potluck at Blanco State Park.
Saturday will mostly be dedicated to decorating the Parade Entry Airstreams and supporting the local businesses.

RR 165 bridge between Blanco and the Settlement

...about the Blanco Settlement its open again . Good News the bridge is expected to be rebuilt and in service by the end of October so that means it should be open for sure by the Christmas Rally, other wise it's over 30 miles between the Settlement and the State Park, which is also slated to reopen in August!. While the state park was flooded, the river rose 60 feet, that's 60 feet, it was about level with the screen houses, however, it did not go into the campground or the pavilion or even the screen houses YEAHHHHHAAAA. It did wipe out the Ranger station where we check in( or try to check inLOL) and it blocked the low water crossing which has also just reopened after much work by many people.
The picnic areas and the wonderful bird blind were also wiped out and these are some of the many things the Friends of Blanco State Park are working on.
I am excited to see what we can bring to the park this year in the way of excitement and joy. Also with the honor of being in the Blanco Christmas Night Time Lighted Parade ! Airstreams and Chrsitmas Lights go so well together, I know we can come up with some great Trailers and RVs to help celebrate this years Christmas.What a chance to show off and also show how much we Love our Blanco !!!
so gather up all the LED rope lights you can find and get ready to Light Up The NIGHT!!!!

We are looking for 1 or 2 vintage Airstream trailers that want to participate in the Blanco parade. We also would like to hear from folks that will participate in this years "Light up the Night" Rally

Glad you can make it again this year!

Let's not forget to express our appreciation for all the work done in the last few years not only by Dennis and Mary, but also Mike and Lora Robinson and Deb and Ken Gordon. As Dennis informed me, they will not be able to make this years Rally. We will miss each and everyone of you dearly.

Did you mean Mike & Lora and Deb & Ken were also NOT going to make it this year ? Or just Dennis and Mary weren't going to be there ?
