If you have ever visited the Llano area, you would have gotten a glimpse of a small-town life in a charming area of the Texas Hill Country. However, what many folks don’t know is that the Llano area’s time to shine is during the hottest days of the year, and year after year, the Llano Chamber of Commerce draws thousands of visitors to some of the most exciting events hosted here in the Hill Country.

Rock’N Riverfest

Things in Llano heat up on July 1, 2017, both on land and in the water, at Rock’N Riverfest. The highlight of the event is the jets ski races, where racers battle both waves and wake to make it to the finish line at top speed. Cheer on the racers on the banks of the Llano River or enter the race yourself by calling Bryan Gumbert at (830) 220-2870. In addition, there will be a RAT Rod Car show held in Badu Park, where you can show off your “one of a kind ride,”  a disc golf tournament, a pet parade, games, face painting, and plenty of vendors on site. For more information and to register for the disc golf tournament and pet parade visit llanorocknriverfest.com.

July Fireworks

In celebration of Independence Day, Llano will be putting on a glorious display of fireworks in Badu Park bordering the beautiful Llano River on July 1st AND July 4th. Fireworks will begin at “dark:30,” so load up those lawn chairs, pack in the blankets, and head on out to Badu Park, 300 Legion Dr., Llano, Texas 78643 for a show you won’t soon forget! For more information, contact the Llano Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce at (325) 247-5354.
