Slainte! Come and join us as we honor the Irish traditions and lore of Samhain, November 3-5 in Water Valley Park. It's only 20 minutes north of San Angelo on Highway 87. There will be feasting, fun and tournaments to honor Her Majesty, Queen Britta, who will be present to help celebrate the harvest! Be on your best behavior, however, as she will also be meting out justice to those who offend her! Be of good cheer, though, for the clergy will be available with indulgences for your sins! Location:
