From United States Senator Ted Cruz: “Welcome to Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World! Although I am unable to join you in person, it is a pleasure to salute 15 years of the Celebrate Bandera festival with the opening of Celebrate Bandera 2016.
“The people of Bandera make this festival an event that all of Texas eagerly anticipates each year. Your leadership, innovation and guidance have made this one of the best western event in the nation. As people from across our great nation move to Texas to pursue their dreams, it is events like this that encourage them to engage deeply in Texas traditions and the vibrant Texas spirit.
“Congratulations on having one of the most celebrated festivals in Texas. May you have many years of continued success! All my best …”
