Blueberries Rule (Cake provided by Brookshire Brothers)

Get your taste buds ready for lots and lots of blueberry dishes. The Nacogdoches Blueberry Festival begins on Friday. Tuesday morning, organizers served blueberry pastries and blueberry sundaes to get everyone in the 'blue' mood.

More than 100 vendors, a record number, will line the brick streets and festival plaza. Festival chairperson, Darla O'Neill said, "Saturday morning at 8:00 downtown, we have the Kiwanis serving up their pancakes, and the vendor booths open up. We have downtown all day long events going on, a pet parade, a pie eating contest, cobbler, ice cream, car show, motorcycle show -- just anything any member of your family will want to do."
