Mark your calendars now. The Mineola Civic Center is hosting the 2012 Lone Star Barbeque Cookoff on Saturday, September 29.
On the same day, the Classic Car Rally will be stopping with us at the same location for their lunch. The Classic Car Rally features 200 – 300 vintage vehicles for your viewing pleasure. They stop in East Texas along their trek for breakfast, lunch and dessert. They should be parked at our Center from 11:00 to 1:00 , just in time for you to enjoy a delicious lunch with us while you enjoy your outing.The Civic Center will be serving fresh grilled hamburger plate lunches for those who want it for only $7.00.
Adding to the festive day, the popular “Shake Rattle & Roll” band will be performing a free concert to entertain attendees and drivers during the event. The BBQ cook off brings many people to Mineola which boosts our economy. The same can be said for the free concert and the Classic Car Rally. The Civic Center hosts these events for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike. Plan to bring your own chair for the concert and enjoy the food, music and cars with us!
