The Texas Dark Skies Festival, a Border Zone event, will be held October 30 & 31, 2015. This is going to be the most awesome event yet and will again feature wonderful presentations about outer space, astronomy, science fiction, and other “out of this world” topics. Make your plans now to attend during the Halloween weekend. On the same weekend, Presidio will rock to the spectacular sounds of the “Dude of the Dead” Music Festival. It’s two big events in the beautiful Big Bend on the same weekend!!!
