Heritage Festival Begins

Twenty one young ladies are hoping they'll become the 2005 Nacogdoches Heritage Festival Queen. Wednesday marked the beginning of the 24th Heritage Festival.

Coronation activities started with a Junior Forum Garden Party. This is just the beginning of many social events. The big one is Saturday night's Coronation. That's when you learn who will wear the crown for the next year.

Also a party everyone is invited to is the Taste of Nacogdoches. That happens Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. at the Fredonia Hotel. Tickets are $10. Children get in for $5.
