Whooping Crane Festival in Port Aransas Best Ever!
(Port Aransas, TX) â€“ Attendees at the annual Whooping Crane Festival in Port Aransas this past weekend certainly "whooped it up." Deemed the best ever event in its eighteen year history, the festival had over 700 registered participants from 30 states and six different Canadian provinces, many of whom flew in just for the festival. "It appears that our festival is becoming well known far and wide, due to many factors," stated Ann Bracher Vaughan, President and CEO of the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce who is the host entity of the festival. "Since our area is the only place where you can view the lone natural migrating flock of the endangered Whooping Crane, and Port Aransas caters to birders with its many enhanced and improved nature spots, it's only natural that the popularity of both the festival and our community continues to grow," she continued.
