Fun Times In Wimberley!



What a great time to be in Wimberley -- so much happens here in the springtime. Bluebonnets are just starting to peek out, and mother nature gave us a gorgeous weekend to enjoy the Valley, didn't she?

 

Saturday brought the first Market Day of 2024, and we're hearing it was an incredibly successful one. On Sunday, hundreds came out to admire the chrome at Coffee and Cars.

 

But perhaps the coolest event of the weekend was "Three Cheers to the Wimberley Valley," held Sunday afternoon at the Oak Park and Welcome Center. More than 100 people showed up to celebrate not one, not two, but THREE big milestones for the Wimberley Valley.

 

The first cause for celebration marks a significant expansion of the Wimberley Valley Cultural District by the Texas Commission on the Arts. The designation promotes creativity as a cultural and economic driver for our area.

 

The second milestone was the Wimberley Valley's selection as the "International Dark Sky Place of 2023." It's an incredible honor and it shows how our town can be a trailblazer in ensuring the stars at night stay big and bright.

 

Last but certainly not least, the City unveiled the mural design that will be painted on the park's water silo. The art commemorates some of our area's most famous natural landmarks.

 

We're so fortunate to be a part of our Little Slice of Heaven -- a big thanks to all of you who work hard to keep it that way! And remember, KWVH is proud to support these nonprofits, too.

 

Brach Thomas: The Man Behind the Waves



If volunteers are the lifeblood of KWVH, then Brach Thomas is the heart of it. He's the man who literally keeps the lights on and the signal transmitting for Wimberley Valley Radio.

 

In part, Brach says some of his audio production skills were a product of his "misspent youth" as an underground rave organizer. Salwa Khan sat down with Brach recently to learn more. 

 

Be Prepared, Wimberley!


We're so saddened to see the terrible devastation caused by the record-breaking wildfires in the Texas Panhandle. It's incredible to imagine how quickly the flames engulfed entire ranches and communities. If something like that happened in Wimberley, would you be ready?

 

On Saturday, March 23 from 10am to 1pm, join KWVH and more than 20 booths at the Third Annual Wimberley Emergency Fair. It's being held at VFW Post 6441 and local, county, and state agencies will be on hand to help you prepare for virtually any emergency situation. And if that's not enough, there'll be helicopters, search and rescue canines, radar-timed baseball throwing booth, and free hot dogs.

 

If you want to help our Panhandle neighbors, please consider donating to groups like the Texas Farm Bureau or the Texas Department of Agriculture STAR Fund.
