2017 Ruby Begonia Selected Today

Tonight the Ruby Begonia was selected for 2017. There were two turkeys on hand for tonight’s race. The turkeys didn’t stay on the course that long.
The asphalt was so hot the turkeys remained on the surface for a short time before darting to the shade. The Turkeyfest team tried to run the bird a couple of times before settling on a winner.

“I would say we have a good ruby this year we go up to Minnesota then come back to Cuero in October we’ll see what we can do,” said Thamm.

Turkeyfest is October 13 through the 15th.
