Texas Traveler: Dr Pepper Texas

This is the week that the "Dublin" signs on the highway are changed to read Dr Pepper, Texas.

The 118th Dublin Dr Pepper Birthday Festival climaxes this weekend with an exciting schedule of events, including live music by Layne Golden and the 10-2-4 Band.

There is a charity run and a kid's bike race on Saturday and free tours of the plant. Best of all, there's free Dr Pepper and birthday cake all day long. Saturday night's grand finale will feature a hot air balloon exhibition.

If you go, don't forget to load up your trunk with cane sugar-sweetened Dublin Dr Pepper. For more information, contact Lori Dodd or Rhonda Jeske at 254-445-4210, or email drpeppertx at embarqmail dot com.
