HERITAGE FESTIVAL

Celina Celebrates Its History and Cowboy Culture At Inaugural Fest

Down on the Historic Downtown Square in early autumn, Celina residents celebrated their history and cowboy culture at the inaugural Heritage Festival. This family-friendly event was conceived and hosted by the city and Celina Public Library as a reminder to residents new and old of Celina's rich heritage and traditions.

The Festival included food and art vendors with a western flair and carnival games reminiscent of the days of old. A Cowboy Poetry Contest with finalists reading their submissions on stage was enjoyed by festival-goers. 

The crowd had the opportunity to visit the Celina Area Heritage Association Museum on the square and see the quilt exhibit on display. The local museum "provides a sense of place and community by celebrating a collective heritage and offering a great way to get to know the history of the Celina area!"

With calf-roping lessons, Celina's own cowboy Punk Carter, and a historic western atmosphere, Heritage Festival was a sweet reminder of Celina's roots.
