The Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg walking club will be hosting a walk in Llano this coming Saturday, March 25th. This is an annual event that is held in conjunction with the Llano Earth Art Festival (LEAF, for short) in March each year. The pictures in this post were taken by Dave Roberts at last year’s festival, and we appreciate him sharing them with us!
Walkers may register and start the walk any time from 9:00 am until Noon. The start point is the Llano County Historical Museum at 310 Bessemer Ave, Llano, TX 78643.
Please see this year’s brochure below for all the details.
This is a fun walk since the art installations that are created along the banks of the Llano River can be seen at a bit of a distance from the walk route. As walkers cross the bridge over the Llano River they are able to see the art work in the river bed below. The bridge is shown in the picture below.
The beautiful works of art are made from natural materials, but the festival is so much more! There are rock stacking contests, food, music, workshops, children’s activities and vendors.
On the Saturday of our walk, the festival opens at 10:00 am. Admission to the festival is $25.00 for people 18 and older at the gate and $20.00 if purchased in advance. You may enter the festival grounds without charge if you arrive before 10:00, but you must leave before they start charging admission at 10:00.
We hope that you can make it out to Llano and enjoy this great walk through a historic Hill Country town!
