Are you ready for Festival? It's almost time only 4 more days until the beginning with the Trails End Dance on June 16.
It wouldn't be a road trip if you didn't find road construction and slow traffic. Lewis and Marilyn Chumbley and Phil and Janet Abel report that the I-35 road construction has reached Waco. A handy website to help with road issues is www.drivetexas.org . Lewis has this to say:
Construction on I-35 has reached Waco. We were in Waco a couple of weeks ago, and ran into a big traffic delay between the Comfort Suites Hotel and the Waco Convention Center caused by construction on I-35. I'm not sure how many of you are staying at the Comfort Suites or Hampton Inn, but you may want to avoid I-35. I have attached a map and directions on how to get to the WCC and back from Comfort Suites without travelling on I-35. You may want to print this off and keep it handy. I plan to bring copies to leave at Comfort Suites. Feel free to share this with any of your friends."
