The Rally Day festival was fueled with excitement, as friends of the library came together to provide entertainment and promote awareness of the programs and services available to the community.

“We came out to support the library and help raise funds for future projects,” said Marjorie Mitchell with the Double C Square Dance Club, a free activity that’s offered to individuals ranging in age from 9 to 90.

The festival featured a book sale, a treasure hunt, miniature horses, 3-D printing presented by Chick-fil-A, the Chick-fil-A mascot, e-books and e-video.

The Society for Creative Anachronism, an international nonprofit educational organization dedicated to the preservation, research and recreation of the crafts, arts and experiences of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, preformed martial activities including armored combat and fencing. The Stronghold of Hellsgate division performed at the event.

Children were fascinated with the miniature horses provided by 5 Hills Cowboy Church in Kempner.

“I had fun riding the horse,” said Imani Jones as she slid off the horse’s back and began jumping for joy.

Also available was the chance to sign-up and become part of the Central Texas Writers Society, where participants can share their writing and writing experiences. Lunch and refreshments were available for a small donation.
