The Hill District Grandstand Show (HDGS) is currently underway, kicking off Jan. 15 and concluding this Saturday, Jan. 21. Youth entered include kids from Bandera County. The week will culminate with The Hill District Grandstand Show’s Youth Auction, which will take place Saturday. The HDGS Youth Auction will reward a year-long commitment made by local Texas youth.
Each child in this sale made a commitment which included many early mornings, late-night feedings, and the priceless experience of raising a show animal project. “On January 21, 2023, we, as supporters of our next generation, will come together to reward their pursuit of excellence in agriculture,” read a press release from show officials. “Again, each project is an investment; an investment of time, money, hard work, and persistence.”
“If you were a previous buyer at 2022’s Hill District Grandstand Show or would like to become a new buyer at the Hill District Grandstand Show’s Youth Auction, we welcome you on January 21st!” read a press release.
The event begins at 11:00 a.m. with buyer check-in and a meal at 12:00 p.m. The auction will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall in Fredericksburg, “If you cannot attend, we welcome your monetary commitment to these kids,” read a press release.
