Square to buzz this weekend with Rites of Spring


The Lockhart Chamber of Commerce, Lockhart Business Cooperative and the City of Lockhart, along with the Caldwell County Commissioners’ Court and the Greater Caldwell County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will host the sixth annual Rites of Spring celebration on the Courthouse Square on Friday and Saturday, March 27 – 28.

A cooperative effort between the area’s busi

ness communities, the Rites of Spring is a reminder that gardening season is right around the corner, and includes a variety of events to help event guests get ready.

In addition to a variety of entertainment and dining options that will be available throughout the weekend, the Rites of Spring will offer crafts booths, contests, car shows and many other free activities for visitors of all ages.

One of the highlights of the weekend will be a question and answer session with Skip Richter, a Texas extension agent and host of “Gardening With Skip.” Richter’s presentation will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Businesses around the Square will have their doors open for shopping throughout the weekend, and several will participate in a wine tasting event for customers. In addition, area vendors will be present with plants, gardening equipment and other goodies to help those with green thumbs – and those without, spring into Spring.

For a full list of events, contact the Lockhart Chamber of Commerce at (512) 398-2818.
