AUGUST EVENTS IN BURNET COUNTY
Visitors and residents of the Highland Lakes can tune in to loads of live music at the end of the summer, cool off to watch the night skies or a true Western, and buy up local goods. From country music to ’80s dance tunes, toe-tapping fun is on the agenda for the month. Plan to play during the hottest music month in the Highland Lakes.
