Crape Myrtle Festival & Driving Trail
Crape Myrtle Capital of Texas
Waxahachie has been designated the Crape Myrtle Capital of Texas. And during the month of July you can experience this phenomenal flower that blooms in the most oppressive of climates, the heat of a southern summer.

Additional Information
In addition to a spectacular fireworks display and tailgate party on the night of July 3, and a hometown parade on the Fourth of July, there is a driving trail that one can follow to discover the best Crape Myrtles in the Lone Star State.
