Utopiafest organizers announced on their website Wednesday, Oct. 3, they are moving the festival to Reveille Peak Ranch on County Road 114.

Burnet County Sheriff Calvin Boyd confirmed the move Wednesday and said he believes “this is a much better location for this type of event” than a private ranch on Shady Grove Road (County Road 200).

“I think this was something they had planned on doing after the public hearing and it was actually the first site they originally picked,” Boyd said. “I think they have a much better chance of getting a (mass gathering) permit with this new location. Reveille Peak is set up for events like this and getting out there is much safer, so I feel better about it.”


Owl-oh-ween a hoot!

The Upper Highland Lakes Nature Center will host Owl-oh-ween, a festive open house, on Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Reveille Peak Ranch. 
The event is free to the public, and will include a number of activities for visitors of all ages:
nature scavenger hunts, Hill Country geology and archaeology, Nature's Masters of Disguise, a program about camouflage, water conservation and rainwater collection, art in nature and face painting, fishing and angler education, and presentations on owls, honey bees, bats, bugs and other creep crawlers. 
Food and drink will be available by donation. For groups of 10 or more, contact
Reveille Peak Ranch is located about eight miles northwest of Burnet just off Ranch to Market Road 2341.
