Fourth Quarter 2014 CyFair ALL Bus Trips
1. October 14 – Froberg’s Farmer’s Market and Haak Vineyards
Froberg’s in Alvin, TX is a Farmer’s Market in a “regular store setting” where fruits, vegetables,
preserves & pies can be purchased year round. Produce varies according to the season. If
Froberg’s doesn’t grow it, additional produce is brought in from other areas. Greak’s Meats is
located directly next to the Farmer’s Market and offers many homemade meat items (i.e.,
sausage, jerky, Boudin in a variety of flavors). Lunch will be at Kelley’s where “Good Country
Cookin” is their specialty. (Purchases from Frobergs, Greak’s or Kelly’s are at your own expense.)
Haak Vineyard & Winery in Santa Fe, TX offers a tour & wine tasting (4 wines & 1 Madeira).
There is a covered patio where people can wait if they choose not to do the tour or tasting. The
$10 cost for the tasting must be paid at registration. The trip will last 7-8 hours.
2. November 8 - Texas Renaissance Festival
Lords and ladies, it's time for the Renaissance Festival, a re-creation of the medieval period.
With live music, comedy shows, jousting, a parade, demonstrations of papermaking, printing,
glassblowing, forging and metalwork, candle making, weaving and more, plus falcon performances,
shopping for unique handmade items, and feasting on every type of food imaginable, it's a full
day of sights and sounds to delight the senses and spark your imagination.
The cost is $18, to be paid when you sign up. Additional money will be needed for food and
shopping. This will be an 8-9 hour trip. Please note that the festival is outdoors. To see
everything will require a fair amount of walking but at your own pace and there are many places
3. December 20 – San Antonio River Walk
Take a break from Christmas shopping and enjoy the holiday festivities on the River Walk in
San Antonio. We will arrive early enough for you to visit one of several museums within walking
distance of the River Walk: Alamo (free, open until 5:30), San Antonio Museum of Art (open
until 9PM) or Briscoe Western Art Museum (open until 6).
After dark enjoy Holiday Boat Carolers and Fiesta de Las Luminarias (more than 6,000 glowing
candles in sand-filled bags line the walkways to symbolically mark the "lighting of the way" for
the Holy Family) and the Christmas lights along the River Walk. Make sure to allow some time
for browsing in the unique shops in the area and have dinner (and drinks, since you are not
driving) in one of the many restaurants.
Cost is $5 at registration. Bring additional money for food, shopping and optional museum
entrance fees. NOTE: This is a 12 hour trip.
