Sand has arrived

Aledo Times Record
Because of the recent rains causing soft ground conditions, the sand was dumped next to the old Henderson Auto lot near the park.

A gentle rain starting around sunrise Thursday, June 2, 2011 softened the ground just enough to cause a slight change of plans for dumping around 10 tons of sand in Aledo's Central Park fountain.

This year is the 20th anniversary of Aledo's Rhubarb Festival and Aledo Central Park should be buzzing with activity starting Thursday night (for preparation) and Friday and Saturday, June 3-4, 2011, for the actual festival. A sand artist is one of the featured happenings for people to enjoy while visiting Aledo.
