And other events:

Fasching Old World Santa:  Downtown Minden Friday night 6p.m. - 8p.m.  Saturday 11a.m. - 8p.m.  Professional pictures available Saturday.  Santa will be located on Main Street.

Royal Klobasneks Music:  The Royal Klobasneks are a 7 piece polka band, based out of Dallas, TX.  The Klobasnek’s repertoire is that of a true dance band, with a song list that includes not only a large selection of polkas and waltzes, but also schottisches, two-steps, landlers, rhumbas, cha chas, pop songs, and fox trots.  The group is also able to supply their crowds with a wide variety of rhythms guaranteed to get you out on the floor!

Czech Melody Masters:  Formed in 1994 as the Dancehall Boys, the Czech Melody Masters have been going strong since 1999.  Like our influences, we keep it simple and sweet.  The band has always strived to emulate the classic brass band sound of such beloved Texas bands and the Bacova Ceska Kapela, Adolph Pavlas, and the Joe Patek and Lee Roy Matocha Orchestras.  In addition, the Czech Melody Masters strive to push their music back in time as well.  The band tries to present songs in their original, full format, often using old faded music scores or scratchy 78 records as a guide.  The result is a book full of songs the way they used to be played, yet performed with today’s energy.

Germantown Tour: Saturday 10a.m. until 1p.m. for bus shuttle to Germantown Colony.  Departure from Minden Building & Loan at the corner of Main Street and Pine Street downtown.

I saw Santa and told him I've been really good this year. He told me, "You've been bad." Dang, he's good.
