Popular PBS television star and Texas traveler, Chet Garner, is coming to Friendswood as part of a series of “Our Downtown is Your Downtown” events.
He is sponsored by the Friends of Downtown Friendswood and will speak on Revitalization of Texas Towns April 5 from 7 – 8 p.m. at Hope Village, 15403A in Friendswood.
Known as the Daytripper, Garner has an award winning show that takes PBS viewers on daylong field trips around the state of Texas, hoping his in-state explorations will ignite a local tourism boom and uncover more of local treasures.
“Chet delivers a very entertaining and inspirational talk on the importance of small towns across our great State,” FDFA President Brett Banfield said. “This is a free ticketed event. We invite the Friendswood community to meet and hear the Daytripper and see what revitalization is all about.”
