Fall means several things in East Texas. Cooler temperatures, muted fall colors, and Friday night football. In Daingerfield, the second weekend in October also brings fun, food, and festivities to downtown. This year’s Daingerfield Days Fall Festival was no exception.
This year’s festivities began on Thursday, Oct. 6, with the Community Stew and Style Show, hosted by the Business & Professional Women’s Club. The club gives out scholarships each spring to two deserving female graduates, and the stew, style show, and cake auction serves as the Club’s main fundraiser. This year, boutiques featured in the Style Show included Lula Roe, the Tiki Hut in Hughes Springs, and Something Special in Daingerfield. The cake auction saw 16 cakes bring in just under the amount needed to fund the scholarships. With an added donation following the auction, the event raised over $1,000 to cover the scholarships.
