As 2019 came to an end, the celebration of a new year and decade began with the Bastrop Opera House Gala and the Bastrop Juneteenth Committee Extravaganza. Guests were entertained by great food and music from the Armadillo Swing Band at the Bastrop Opera House while they danced the night away. Over at Casa Chapalla, the Bastrop Juneteenth New Year’s Eve Extravaganza had a full dinner followed by party favors, dancing and a toast at midnight.

More parties were hosted throughout the county, but here are moments captured from two of the events.
