Take the family on a short Saturday drive to enjoy an old-fashioned Country Fair while supporting veterans and their families on Saturday, April 9, from 11am to 6pm at the Oil Ranch in Hockley. Just a 50-minute drive from College Station, the action-packed event has something for everyone, from a petting zoo and a mechanical bull to live music and free line dancing lessons.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Lone Survivor Foundation, which provides support for wounded service members, their spouses, children, and caregivers.

The public is encouraged to come out and support the Country Fair at Oil Ranch. Active military and veterans with valid military ID will be admitted free. Miss Texas 2015, Angelica Alcala-Herrera, will be taking photos with guests. There will be live music, a silent auction and concessions available.

Activities will include rock climbing, a mechanical bull, zorb collision course, and free line dancing lessons for adults. Children’s activities will include pony rides, train and hayrides, face painting, bounce houses, hay maze, hamster wheel races, mini golf, and more.

“NEVER QUIT on those who NEVER QUIT on us!” is the creed of the Lone Survivor Foundation. Funds raised at this event will allow veterans and their families to participate in therapeutic retreats, which are provided at no cost for service men and women in need. Retreats provide helpful tools addressing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, sexual trauma, and pain management.

Pre-sale tickets are $20 for adults ($25 at the gate) and $15 for children ages 2-12. For directions to Oil Ranch and to purchase tickets online, visit
