It's Bluebonnet Season Around Texas


The signs that Spring is here have arrived as bluebonnets started blooming around North Texas.

Ennis is gearing up to celebrate the state flower. The "Official Bluebonnet City" of Texas is home to some of the best and most abundant bluebonnets in the state.

“The Bluebonnet Festival is to share with the public the beauty of our area, the surrounding area, the trails and inviting everyone,” Julie Hejny said. “Family and friends [can] come and see the beauty of Mother Nature.”

The Bluebonnet Trails Festival will run from April 7 through April 9.

“The festival brings in so many visitors into our town and it showcases our wonderful city and it showcases the beautiful land that we are surrounded by,” Hejny said. “We are so proud of this flower and just educating people on how the blue bonnets grow and how they can grow them in their yards if they would like to.”

Beyond being beautiful, the flowers also mean money as visitors flock to Ennis this time of year.
