Ben Wheeler’s famous Barstool Races are expanding this year to include a full day of activities and concerts, and participation from their FM 279 sister city, Edom, just eight miles east, for this annual Saint Patrick’s Day celebration.
“Love is all around” in the Southeast corner of Van Zandt County, Texas, (between Dallas and Shreveport) where you’ll find a unique district with three small towns and beautiful surrounding countryside.
Students were asked to create original work in acrylics, oils, watercolor, chalk, pencil, or colored pencil with a theme of “Cowboy Christmas.” A total of 360 submissions came from children in Pre K through the 8th grade.
Each year one of the participating artists in the Edom Art Festival provides artwork for the festival’s poster (see on opposite page) and T-shirts. For 2018 the honor goes to Gary Bacher of New Boston, Texas.
