 The legend of the maiden who became a mermaid continues to stir the waters of Salado Creek.

“I think it’s a little bigger than pre-COVID,” said Tiffany Schreiner, founder of the event, about the turnout for the 5th annual Sirena Fest on Saturday. “I think people are ready to get out and celebrate creativity and community.”

Following an 11 a.m. pet parade at Barrow Brewing Co., an energetic crowd filled the stage area and the grounds along the south bank of the creek. With the live music, food and drink, character costumes and mermaids, it was something like a six-ring circus.

The Beverly Hillbillies would have felt right at home Saturday as about 40 Model T Fords were on display in front of the Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum for its October family day — “Transportation Day.”

Jordyn Rodriguez, museum development assistant, said the museum had been busy, with people coming to see the old cars in the Texas T Party, and for such activities as the Boy Scout-sponsored boat races.

“We have some fantastic crafts,” she said. “And the train cars are open.”

Mike Hicks, museum director, said he was thrilled to have the Model T display joining the museum for Transportation Day.

Michael Mackechney of San Antonio, chairman of the Texas T Party said it is usually held the first weekend of October.

“We have people come from all over the world,” he said. “We find a small city. We will branch out and go sightseeing at small activities within 100 miles.”

His car in this show was a 1926 Model T Ford touring car.

“It was the first car I built, almost 19 years ago,” he said. “From scratch. Every nut and bolt. Every piece of metal. Other than a few safety things, it’s pretty much all stock.”

He said it has about a 22-horse power motor and an electric starter, although it can be hand-started.

“Most of the cars I have to hand-start,” he said. “I have seven right now.”
