By the early 1890′s the rapidly expanding city of Corsicana had outgrown its water supply. Drilling began in 1894, with the aim of tapping a shallow artesian well in the area. Instead of water, they hit a large pocket of oil and gas, which was the first significant discovery of oil west of the Mississippi River. This led to Texas’ first oil boom. Derrick Days commemorates Corsicana’s rich oil history this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m with a chili cook-off, battle of the bands, car show, 42 and cornhole tournaments, and live entertainment.

This weekend is the Riata Roundup Rodeo & LTX BBQ Fest in Lampasas. There’s a BBQ Cookoff with a $5,000 guaranteed payout, cornhole tournament, pageant, and plenty more activities for everyone to enjoy!
