Haven’t ever heard of Helotes, Texas? Then let us see what this small town is all about.

The Indian Chief would declare the corn ripe and a special festival was held to celebrate the corn crops.
The growing of corn was an important development for the area. The Comanche Indians forced the Lipan out of the area and remained there long enough to give early settlers some unexpected trouble. Still, today in Helotes a festival is held each year on the first weekend in May to celebrate the corn crops harvest. The Cornyval is a large entertaining event for the city and many attend the different events held during the weekend. A rodeo, music venues, crafts, a parade, yummy food, beauty pageants, Civil war re-enactment and carnival rides on the midway highlight the event.
