July 4th Festival, Buda – Keg Contest

Buda, Texas – Fourth of July Festival

One summer, while living in Austin,  I went to a July 4th Festival in Buda, Texas.  Buda is a little town in the Hill Country outside of Austin.   It was your basic festival; with live music, games, craft booths, BBQ and various other food and vendor booths.  As my now ex boyfriend and I walked along enjoying the day, we saw a crowd gathering on the hill in front of us.  So of course, we had to see what all the noise was about.

On further inspection, guess what we found?  A Keg tossing contest!  Yes folks, that is right …A keg tossing contest! Ha!  Only in Texas. 😉  Of course my ex boyfriend had to take some pictures of this.  Even though I am the one who takes pictures of everything, he grabbed the camera and started snapping.   So as he photographed, I watched in amusement.

The way I understand it, the one who throws the keg the furthest wins.  Maybe it was this guy?  Or maybe not …

Well, anyway …there you have it …Keg Tossing in Buda; on one  hot, sunny July 4th weekend.  I never thought I would use these pictures and one day be blogging from AtoZ, with K being for Keg!

    1. You know, I thought about that while I was posting this. I can’t remember if they were full or empty …or if I even knew then. I can’t imagine them lifting and throwing them full though. But empty …how light are they …maybe to light to even be a competition. It was a lot of fun. And Buda is a quaint little town …almost a suburb of Austin now. Thanks for stopping!
