Klobassa Festival holds benefit Auction

Locals' Show cars show best in Texas as exemplified by Best in Show for Sherri Scott's Platinum 1963 Key Biscay.

CROSBY – The Knights of Columbus Hall featured a bevy of friendly fishers of men, a lively, humored live auction, a lot filled with fantastic classic cars and barbecue on June 30 for the Klobassa Festival.

The chicken dinners were done to perfection and so was the sausage.

Anyone needing a friend had only to look around and if they were very particular – well, Bert Baker was outside parking late arriving cars.

The secret to a great Klobassa Festival is having lots of entertainment and Eddie Foster was on his feet at all times keeping the rest of us on our feet.

This year Classic Cars, Classic Trucks and even a few sexy Tractors were a serious feature as some of the greats in the state (most owned by locals) filled the 1508 Crosby-Dayton Road parking lot. It was a festival of Fifteens when 15 trophies were awarded for vehicles and 15 firearms were raffled. Numerous tickets to the raffle were sold at the Festival.

The Klobassa Festival is about having fun and raising money for Sacred Heart Charities and providing scholarships for Sacred Heart School students.

The Klobassa Festival takes its origin from the Czech heritage in Crosby from the 19th Century based on the type of sausage made by the Czech immigrants. It is a local cultural heritage event not to be missed for fun and great taste.
