Rally For Ruby Thanks

From Cuero Turkeyfest

Dear Editor,

Our Ruby Begonia hopefuls, our racing turkeys, raced this weekend in the qualifying heat at our annual Rally for Ruby. Our Rally for Ruby winner will race against Paycheck in the Great Gobbler Gallop at Turkeyfest, set for the second weekend in October, and you are invited to the big 50th celebration!

I want to first thank our incredible Turkeyfest Board of Directors for their dedication to this long standing tradition, both the Rally for Ruby and Cuero Turkeyfest. Thanks to the 2022 Cuero Turkeyfest Race Team, which is comprised of Trent Kainer, Butch Prause, Joel Hilburn and ShaNon Henson. We thank our race team sponsors for making this possible: Cuero Pecan House, Cuero Lube & Tire, Exibix, inc. & Benny Boyd Partners Chevrolet Buick GMC.

Rally for Ruby was a community-wide celebration thanks to our food and drink vendors: Stir Soda Shoppe, 5D Travelin Tavern and KBs BBQ. Our entertainment, sponsored by Ranch House Spirits & Gifts, was top notch and provided by Matt Moeller.

The Board of Directors appreciate the community’s support & attendance at the Rally for Ruby event, as well as support from The City of Cuero and Cuero Main Street for allowing us to hold this special race in historic downtown Cuero.

Save the dates for the historic 50th Annual Turkeyfest - October 7 - 9th - and to get your pre-sale tickets online starting in August. Headliners include: Austin Meade, Giovannie & The Hired Guns, Shenandoah, Los Texmaniacs, Flatland Cavalry, Diamond Rio and more! This is what Cuero’s Turkeyfest is all about - turkeys, traditions and family fun, uniting our community and celebrating the love of Cuero. Don’t miss it!
