yesterday we received a phone call from ms. wally sanson to let us know that the 3rd kolin kolache festival will be held this year at the kolin hall on saturday, 27 october 2012.
ms. sanson tells wst... that she is taking reservations for booths which are 10'x12' at $25.00 each.
her phone number is 318.443.9985. czech festivals are a wonderful opportunity to promote your business or cause to the community!
according to ms. sanson, last year all 130 dozen kolaches specially delivered from a noted czech bakery located in hallettsville, texas were sold out. this was an increase of ten dozen kolaches over the festival's inaugural year that the bakery provided which sold out too. that's not counting all the cochon de lait dinner plates sold plus whatever products, goods or services that the thirty-four independent vendors sold.
entertainment confirmed to appear so far for this year of 2012, include: strolling comedy-magic, balloon art and ventriloquism of david g. wonders;
musical guest: central louisiana's own: danny white and white lightning. regular weekend visitors to tunk's cypress inn will instantly recognize to whom we're referring as white lightning plays there two nights a month.
danny white for the last fifteen years has hosted 'solid gold sunday's' from 6am - noon as well as 'today's best country' saturdays from 6am - 10am, both on krrv fm 100.3.
earlier today wst... interviewed danny white, he told us that white lightning plays a mix of country, blues, oldies, cajun and zydeco and that they also take and appreciate audience requests - so we went ahead and requested "the freeze."
