136th St Louis Day Celebration Castroville, Texas Sat & Sun Free Admission
Saint Louis Day 2018 EARLY MORNING COOKS: Before dawn Sa turday, locals begin making thousands of pounds of famous Alsatian sausage to be served on picnic day. Pictured below right are veteran wurst-tiers, who along with a crew of 50+ parishioners, will make sure the succulent sausage is just right before being stored in the giant walk-in cooler. Local "Castrovillians" can be seen scurrying all over the park during the day on Saturday preparing the grounds in anticipation of the big crowds from all over the state and beyond who will be joining the festivities Saturday night and all day Sunday.
FESTIVITIES BEGIN SATURDAY EVENING! SATURDAY 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm: MUSIC, FOOD AND ICE COLD BEER! Get a jump on the fun Saturday evening! For the 8th year, the Biergarten Party has opened Saturday evening with frosty cold beer on tap, hot dogs and live bands to keep you toe-tappin' and singin' along. The phrase "homecoming" certainly applies to this evening as extended family and friends meet to eat, drink and catch up. Even if your roots aren't Castrovillian, you are truly "family" at St. Louis Day! Tip #1: If you want to speak like a Castroville native, remember the surname Tschirhart is pronounced "Sheer-hart."
The tasty Sarge’s St. Louie Red Hots (all-beef hot dogs with all the trimmings) are grilled to perfection by Sarge's descendents, Josh Keller & brothers, and go great with icy cold beverages. Tip #2: You'll want ALL the trimmings on yours! This is not a weekend to count calories. Later in the evening you'll want to take part in the annual Lighting of the Sacred Fire, when a mountain of cured mesquite wood will be touched off to provide red hot coals for the famous slow-roasted BBQ Brisket. Smoking and seasoning will be under the careful watch of Todd Haby & Travis Holzhaus, along with their veteran crew. St. Louis Day Boardwalk will also be open Saturday evening as well as Sunday with games & fun for the kids.
SUNDAY - HOLY MASS at St. Louis Catholic Church • 9:30 am Start your day in the majestic St. Louis Catholic Church for Holy Mass at 9:30 am. Archbishop Gustavo will preside. The famous Liederkranz Choir of San Antonio will once again be the choir for this beautiful Mass. Stay parked and hop on a shuttle to Koenig Park for the day. The air-conditioned buses will drop off and pick up all day long. Tip #3: this is the best way to get there even if not attending Mass.
THE FAMOUS MEAL: For just $8 diners get a “piled high” 2-meat BBQ PLATE featuring smoked brisket and homemade Alsatian Sausage. Cured mesquite wood from area land is used to slow cook thousands of pounds of barbecued brisket each year. Enjoy homemade potato salad, cole slaw, bacon-flavored pinto beans, Haby’s Alsatian bread, pickles, onions and the savory St. Louis Day BBQ sauce. There’s plenty of ice cold tea to wash it all down.

PRISONERS UNDER THE RISING SUN thru- SEPTEMBER 3 FREE
This special exhibit features a look at the life of a POW through material in the museum’s collection and several pieces of artwork by Ben Steele borrowed from the Montana Museum of Art and Culture at the University of Montana. Benjamin C. Steele (1917-2016) Steele was born in Roundup, Montana. Stationed in the Philippines at the onset of World War II, he participated in the first major land battle on the Bataan Peninsula. Japan launched a devastating attack, and the battle ended with the surrender of more than 76,000 men under American command. The Japanese Army forced the prisoners on the infamous Bataan Death March, and many - sick, starving and forced to march under a tropical sun - perished. Steele suffered an ordeal of unparalleled cruelty. He began documenting his experience. The dozens of drawings he created were smuggled out of the camps, but unfortunately were lost, with the exception of two, when the ship carrying them was bombed. He ultimately spent 1244 days as a prisoner of war during WWII. During his year-long recuperation in a Spokane hospital after the war, Steele recreated the lost drawings. Following his recovery, he pursued a degree at the Cleveland Institute of Art from 1947 to 1950. In 1950, Steele received teaching credentials from Kent State University and subsequently earned an MA in art from the University of Denver. Steele returned to Montana in 1959 to teach art at Eastern Montana College, Billings, where he was a professor until 1982. BR This exhibit is free to the public and does not require a museum ticket.
