SouthStar Bank participated in the annual Come and Take It festivities as an event sponsor. The celebration takes place in early October in historic downtown Gonzales, TX.

The Come and Take It festival is a tradition that goes back over 60 years. Come and Take It celebrates the firing of the first shot of the Texas Revolution that occurred on October 2, 1835. Each year the community gathers to celebrate its Texas heritage. Throughout the three days, multiple activities take place including live music, a parade, egg toss, 5K run, a chicken flying contest, and much more.

This festival represents one of the most important points of Texas History. SouthStar enjoys being a part of such a historical event and looks forward to celebrating Come and Take It again.
