On Saturday the San Antonio Food Bank, in partnership with the Lone Star Beer Company, hosted the donation-based Texas Heritage Festival on the beer manufacturer’s industrial grounds. Despite the afternoon heat, crowds gathered and enjoyed a variety of live music, food, and outdoor games throughout the venue.
The music played ranged from alternative rock with The Only Hipsters, who’s lyrics joked about local customs and praised the Spurs, to the neo-soul and R&B sounds of LaTasha Lee & The Blackties. One highlight was walking back from Frank and hearing an upbeat, cumbia cover of Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” by Grupo Fantasma.

Plenty of families and friends competed against one another in cornhole, mini-basketball shootouts, and a high striker; there was even a mechanical armadillo and a surprise appearance of the Fun Fun Fun Fest’s infamous taco cannon. Paired with the Lone Star’s beer were the The Box Street Social and Amy’s Ice Creams food trucks, as well as Austin’s own Frank hot dog (who’s planning on opening a location in Southtown soon enough).
