People love Boerne for the small town atmosphere, Hill Country views, and quaint downtown. However, Boerne also has far more to offer both visitors and residents alike than many realize! Boerne is known for rich heritage, a great location, and an active community, all of which are showcased by local businesses. No need to research, five of the best fun events to attend and businesses to visit in Boerne and the surrounding areas this weekend are described below. Hopefully this list will make planning a perfect Texas Hill Country weekend a little easier!
1. See a Show Starring the Boerne Community Theatre
Come see the thespians of the Boerne Community Theatre as they present "The Crazy Quilt Club". A who-done-it about a sweet little old lady who spends most of her time knitting and solving murders, this play promises to keep the audience’s minds racing. Clues drop as fast as corpses and dialogue races along at breakneck speed, keeping the audience in question until the last minute as the surprising death of one of the characters is investigated. Why spend the night on the couch watching old rental movies when you can support local theater AND see something new?!
When: Friday, 8:00pm, Saturday, 8:00pm, Sunday, 2:30 pm
