Close, it's the Cynthia Ann Parker Days in Crowell, Texas.

I always thought it best to have it the same weekend, but I note from their website that they haven't updated the dates from last year...Cynthia Ann Parker Days

The reason for this was simply to give folks something else to do that weekend...but it's not set in stone that it needs to be the same weekend, at all.

This year I was hoping that the Hun Farm could enter a float in the parade......

From what I've seen, we can just get a tractor and hay trailer, throw some bales on it, and present whatever we wish!

Maybe something 'patriotic'...with firearms from different periods in Foard County History carried by folks dressed from the appropriate period.

Finally, a chance to wear your Confederate uniform, Spanish American War outfit, doughboy, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, or Persian Gulf I and II uniforms...with the right weapon!

Finally! A chance to show off that M-4 in public!

Just thinking out loud, but such a float would be 'Best in Show.'

Ok, I concede... That's a very good idea ETH. If this becomes a serious project, I'm in for material and labor.

I have been wanting to attend one of these famed Hun Farm events for quite a while.
This spring it looks like the Cynthia Ann Parker Days festival will be during the last class I need to take before graduating in June.

I'll just have to keep an eye on the schedule and see how it goes

I like your idea ETH, I dont have any uniforms and such or old rifles..

I would drive the tractor since I dont drink much and can drive anything with wheels.

Put me down for the build committee or what ever else.

I love a parade..

... put "New Orleans ISD" on the sides, paint a simulated muddy water line up to the tops of the windows, drape a "Just say 'NO' to Looting" banner on it, and walk along side with our ARs?

The Hun Farm is my family farm situated on the Pease River in Foard County, Texas.

This 1,000 acre farm was purchased by my great, great grandfather John Teague Hun in 1885, and his Granddaughter, Dovie Grethel Teague Hun (my Grandmother) was born there in 1900. My Father was born on the Farm in 1923.

I shot my first centerfire rifle there in 1962, at age 10.

Except for the fencing, and the Cabin that my Aunt Wanda Whitaker Hun and I had built in 1988, the Farm pretty much looks the same as when John Teague Hun bought it in 1885.

Our nearest neighbor is about 8.5 miles away.

Keep watching this Forum for more details.

Nope, not to my knowledge, at least.

Aunt Wanda was married to Robert L. Whitaker who was a vice-president of West Texas Utilities, back in the 1960s and 1970s.

His only son is Keith Whitaker.

So far it has been very helpful.

Welcome !!

If you can make a Hun Farm event I highly recommend it.

Its a blast !! ( pun intended )


Its strickly roughing it, camping in the great outdoors..no facilities but there is a nice park up the road
for a daily shower at 2 bucks.

Once you go to an event you will want to attend each and everyone there after, I think it has to do with
the great outdoors and the air...uuhhhhmmm not to mention our gracious host
Link Posted: 1/15/2006 12:51:26 PM EDT
Hey ETH do if in April right after the 14th. I am going to be in Texas from the 11th-14th and would come right on over.

I'm scheduled to go down to Wichita Falls sometime this year to Sheppard AFB for 7-level school for the Air Guard and it would be sweet if it happened to fall during the Spring Hun Farm get-together!



You could just be like me and my friends and pitch a tent 100 yrds from the firing line. Then you won't be lying when you say those bastards kept you alive all night too.

Next time I'll be up making the tent closest to the firing line stays awake.
