Every year, in conjunction with the Texas Independence Day/Sam Houston Birthday Celebration, the Huntsville Tourism Department hosts the "Baptized a Texan" event. This event is to ceremonially transform non-Texas natives into official Texans!
This year at the March 2nd events there is a group of 17 set to be baptized Texan, the largest group to date! We have travelers coming from Dallas, League City, Livingston, Spring, and New Waverly to take part in the baptism.
The ceremony will take place at the Texas Independence Day Program at Sam Houston's grave site in Oakwood Cemetery at 11 a.m. on March 2, 2017.
