Bluebonnet Trails season has began

Ennis Bluebonnet Trails season has arrived. The flowers are making a fantastic showing. This is the Ennis Garden Club’s 60th year to host this event and offer the bluebonnet trail maps during the whole month of April. The Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau has already been inundated with out of town guests. Every year we are having more and more visitors. The Visitor Center is open seven days a week in April, except Easter Sunday, to serve the bluebonnet seekers.

It’s hard to believe that so many individuals and tour buses come to Ennis to look and take pictures of the flowers and the countryside. We have gotten so accustomed in viewing the flowers that we forget how special they really are. Since the trails have become more popular ever year, the Ennis Garden Club members are in dire need of volunteers at the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau. Gina and Paula are doing a great job but they cannot handle hundreds of people every day and triple that on the weekends.

The club is excited about our pictures and article in the Texas Highways magazine this month. It has taken years of hard work to get listed in the magazine as one of the top areas in the state to view wildflowers. The month of April is a special time for Ennis to really shine. Ennis Bluebonnet Trails brings a lot of extra capital to our town in different areas as the out of town guests eat, shop, spend the night at our local hotels, and visit our local attractions.

Any donations of time will be greatly appreciated during the month of April. Call Gina or Paula to see when you are needed or just drop by the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau at 002 East Ennis Ave. Call 972-878-4748 for more information.

Please help us make Ennis really shine blue!

Nancy Swindell, Ennis Garden Club President
