Yes, it is that wonderful time of the year again when those green leaves in the trees surprise us with how much they grow every day, and birds just everywhere with their antics. And we are getting very busy in the yard. It can even be overwhelming. Hopefully, you have clipped dead branches and prepared a little section of your yard for growing some new little seedlings, even if it is some pots with brand new potting soil.

Funnel cakes, turkey legs, alligator on a stick. Then have some pork kabobs, donut burgers, candy apples, popcorn and a plethora of fried snacks. Just about anything you can think of to eat is available from more than 75 food vendors at the 74th annual South Texas State Fair on the grounds of Ford Park, which begins Thursday, March 30, with the 10-day festival of fun ending Sunday, April 9.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. next Thursday, and there is literally something for everyone. Some come for the food. Some come for the games, carnival rides, exhibits, live music and the rodeo.

Greater Tuna returns to Orange for one performance only at the Lutcher Theater on Tuesday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m.

Greater Tuna is a hilarious and irreverent comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of Tuna citizens – men, women, children and animals alike – is portrayed by only three performers, making this satire on life in rural America both crazy and delightful.

Tickets are $35-$45 and can be purchased online at lutcher.org or by calling (409) 886-5535.
