Murphy’s Craft Beer Festival Brings Sunshine and Smiles
The City of Murphy welcomed sunshine and blue skies as the third annual Tunes, Tails and Ales Craft Beer Festival kicked off on April 28. This year’s event was well worth the wait as family and friends arrived for a spectacular day filled with food, fun and entertainment. Mustang Sally Productions also had a classic car, truck and bike show for everyone to enjoy.
VIP ticket holders entered the event one hour early after each receiving a swag bag, glass snifter and pretzel necklace. Over 150 craft beers were available during the craft beer sampling portion of the festival, as well as Texas wine provided by local wineries. Crowds of mudbug enthusiasts had the opportunity to devour hundreds of pounds of crawfish, along with choices of sweet and savory items being sold by local food trucks.
Kid Zone activities provided smiles for miles as children of all ages had a blast. In addition to cooling off at Murphy’s Splash Pad, kids jumped in bounce houses, played games, had their faces painted and much more. Have we talked about dogs having fun yet? Dogs attending the festival also spent the day being adorable and well-behaved while drinking plenty of water.
ET Sound DJ and local Murphy band, Hard Country, provided music during the day. As last call for craft beer sampling was announced, guests began making their way to Murphy Central Park Amphitheater. Lounge chairs, blankets and coolers were perfectly in place before the festival’s headlining band, LIVE 80, took the stage. The band delivered an ultimate ‘80s flashback providing a perfect ending to a fantastic festival.
