The 2nd Annual Mason Country Music Fest presented by KNEL is scheduled for Saturday, May 23rd during Memorial Day weekend. The event is sponsored by Mason National Bank, Country Home Health, Tina Hoffman/ReMax, Ben E. Keith, and the Mason County Chamber of Commerce.

All those who purchase tickets to the music fest will be given a ballot to vote on their favorite performance. Tickets are $10 each and 20% of all ticket proceeds will benefit Bluebonnet CASA. Two dollars of every ticket sold will be donated directly to this organization. Tickets are available from CASA directors and at the Mason Chamber of Commerce. Children 10 years and under will be admitted free.

The concert features singer/songwriter Mack Abernathy on stage bringing us Real Country Music. The emcee for the night is Tracy Pitcox. The Music Fest takes place from 6:00 pm to 12 midnight at Mason’s City Park outdoor dance slab. The event is BYOB but glass is not permitted. Bluebonnet CASA will also sell drinks during the festival and all of the sales will benefit their organization.
