Welcome to Brookshire, Texas. Come
experience country living in a small town
that's only about 30 miles outside of
Houston. It's close enough to all the
and cultural attractions of the Houston
metro area, while keeping the beauty and
serenity of country life.
This small Waller County town has a lot of
offer even though it spans only 3.5 square
miles. We have a diverse population of 4,702
(according to the 2010 U.S. census),
excellent schools (Royal
ISD), low taxes, affordable housing, a
wealth of churches, and many other community
events and programs.

Cinco de Mayo Festival
held on May 4th & 5th 2013
Saturday, May 4, 2013 was the start of the
13th year that Brookshire celebrated Cinco
de Mayo. The parade started at the
Brookshire Police Department and continued
to Brookshire Convention Center, then the
trail riders continued on to Hovas Park.
Rooms To Go sponsored this year’s festival
and had a beautiful float. The parade
featured a full lineup of different
businesses, the Yates High School Band, and
a special float for the contestants of the
Little Mr. and Miss Cinco de Mayo. This was
also a time for area horseman to show off
their beautiful horses and candidates for
the upcoming election to introduce
gathered at Hovas Park afterwards to enjoy
the Mariachi and dancing horses. Several
booths were on hand to serve food, and even
much welcomed snow cones.
At 2:00, the
Little Mr. and Miss Cinco de Mayo pageant
began. Little Miss Cinco De Mayo was Isela
Flores and Mr. Cinco de Mayo was Johnny
The Fiesta continued on Sunday with several
bands performing throughout the day. This
year we once again saw record-breaking
crowds and vendors.
Rooms To Go children’s fund had a booth so
that everyone could register for two
drawings this year. Karla Andalla from
Brookshire won a kid's bedroom set, and Ruth
Arellano from Waller won an adult bedroom
set. Congratulations to you both!
We would like
once more to thank Rooms To Go children’s
fund for sponsoring this event.
We wish to thank
the Cinco de Mayo committee for making this
another wonderful event for our community.
