I remember when I first moved to this part of the country, one of the first places I went was to the 'Fiddlers' Frolics' at the K.C. Hall in Halletsville. What I remember most is the great music, delicious food, and friendly people. If you want to have a great time with your entire family, I highly recommend this weekend of fun.

Scores of talented musicians will descend on Hallettsville this weekend at the 42nd annual Fiddlers' Frolics. The event includes the Texas State Championship fiddle contest, the Gone to Texas fiddle contest and divisions for youth and for seniors as well as the popular Anything Goes competition.

"The talent level is unbelievable. It really blows my mind. These fiddle players are so good, it's unreal," said Kenneth Henneke, event co-chairman, told the Victoria Advocate. "This is truly a national event. We will have more than 100 fiddle players in here from all over," co-chairman Stuart Fryer said. "We have fiddle players coming from as far away as Oregon and Washington state."

 In addition to all the fiddle playing, the event includes the Texas State barbecue cook-off championship, live music, a Cajun fun night complete with authentic Cajun food and music as well as arts and crafts vendors and more.

The 42nd Annual Fiddlers' Frolics is a four-day event. Children under 12 can enter free excluding the Saturday night dance. A weekend pass for adults is $35. The event is at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 321 U.S. Highway 77 S., Hallettsville.
