Our Sweetest Hours ⏳

SUNDAY October 2, 2022

“All our sweetest hours fly fastest.”

Virgil, Roman poet

The fact that two festivals in our region this week started 40 and 50 years ago means they must be doing something right. The Edom Art Festival celebrates its 50th year and the Marshall FireAnt Festival continues for its 40th year. Both festivals are bigger and better than the year they started. Read more about what they offer in this issue.

THIS TIME OF YEAR
Fans Are Still Celebrating Stevie Ray Vaughan

Governor Ann Richards proclaimed October 3, 1991, Stevie Ray Vaughan Day in Texas 31 years ago — the year after he was killed in a helicopter crash.

Vaughan’s tragic and unexpected death shocked fans and the music world. His fame spanned only seven years of his lifetime, but his mastery of traditional blues music with the electric guitar brought an unmatched swagger to the genre and defined him as one of rock n’ roll’s greatest musicians. READ MORE.
