KYLE – They weren’t planning for a riot this weekend at Plum Creek’s Front Porch Days, and they didn’t have one. But more than 2,000 people showed up for an easy, pleasant time over the weekend at Fergus Park.
The highlight hit the stage at high noon Sunday, when The Biscuit Brothers of PBS children’s show fame performed before about 300 happy kids on the main stage.
The Biscuit Brothers are produced and aired from KLRU-TV in Austin to an increasingly national audience on Saturday mornings. The show is a combination of live action and animation starring Allen Robertson as Buford Biscuit and Jerome Schooler as Dusty Biscuit.
“It was a huge draw,” said Sean Claes, publicity chairman for Plum Creek. “It was a huge win for us that they came down and did the show.”
The event included home tours and a golf tournament for adults, as well as live music on two stages. The kids were entertained by rides and a very popular petting zoo.
But, mostly, the draw was the beautiful weather and a busy park.
“It’s an excuse for residents to come and party,” Claes said. “It started as an event to draw people into Plum Creek and show them what a unique community it is. It has evolved into a party for the residents.”
Plum Creek, a groundbreaking master planned community when it opened in 1998, now has 1,300 completed homes and about 4,000 residents.Email | Print
