Ennis, Texas, is located just 35 miles southeast of Dallas, Texas. It was established in 1872 and in 1930s used to be known as the place “Where Railroads and Cotton Fields Meet.” Today it is known, among other things, as the place where Bluebonnet and Czech heritage are celebrated. The National Polka Festival is held here every Memorial Day Weekend. Music, costumes, and food of the Czech heritage will be showcased. The parade will run through this historic downtown of Ennis. Go there this weekend, if you got the chance!
“Ennis was designated by the 1997 State Legislature as the home of the “Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail” and was designated the “Official Bluebonnet City of Texas.” From April 1-30, Ennis showcases over 40 miles of mapped driving Bluebonnet Trails sponsored by the Ennis Garden Club.” Read more at their official website:http://www.visitennis.org/bluebonnet.htm
