Bluebonnets cluster around train rails as the Mighty Thomas Carnival is assembled beyond at the corner of Boundary and League Streets in Burnet.  The carnival is just one attraction in the four-day Burnet Bluebonnet Festival. Some celebrants will arrive by the Austin Steam Train Association's Bluebonnet Festival Flyer (www.austinsteamtrain.org).






The Texas state flower is putting on its show and all roads (and railroads) lead to Burnet this weekend for the 2018 Bluebonnet Festival.

Thursday-Sunday, April 13-15, marks Burnet's 35th annual celebration of that carpet of blue.

It all begins Thursday with the Mighty Thomas Carnival opening, 5-10 p.m., at the corner of Boundary and League Streets.

The carnival has traditional features for every age, with Family Night on Thursday, a local favorite. It will be open also on Friday, 5-11 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m., and Sunday noon-5 p.m.

Wrist bands for unlimited rices can be purchased ahead of time at the Burnet Chamber of Commerce and at the carnival. Single tickets can be purchased for $1 per ticket, or $25 for 30 tickets. Rides are 3-5 tickets and all riders must have tickets.
