Attend This Year’s Buc Days Festival and Carnival

Pirate on a Treasure Hunt

Shiver me timbers, it’s almost time for Corpus Christi’s longest-running pirate festival. That’s right…the Buc Days Festival is almost here! This festival has been a staple of Corpus Christi since 1938, and will take place through May 14th this year. It opens at noon every Saturday and Sunday, and at 5 PM every Monday through Friday. Get there early and stay all day so that you can take in all of the fun!

Rides Galore

It doesn’t matter if you like to take it easy or you want the biggest thrills around; you can find fun rides at Buc Days that deliver the perfect experience. The rides are available courtesy of Wade Shows, and the company is offering some specials to help people pack in rides without spending tons of cash. In fact, you can attend Dollar Day on May 4th and ride various rides for a buck each. You can also get a daily armband or a mega pass to ride as many rides as you want without paying extra. Save on your passes by buying them before Buc Days begins.

The Parades

The Buc Days IBC Bank Junior Parade will take off at 6 PM on May 13th. This parade doesn’t offer reserved seating, so get there early to grab a good spot.

The Music

It also wouldn’t be Buc Days without some toe-tapping tunes. You will hear music from Shayna Sands, Robert Ray, Motif, RetroVibe, Out of Bounds, and many more. You don’t have to pay to listen to the music. Just pay your $5 to get into Buc Days and you can listen to as much music as your ears desire!


Buc Days might be getting most of the press, but it’s not the only exciting thing going on in the Corpus Christi area. Mike Shaw Toyota in Robstown, Texas, also brings the excitement. No, our dealership doesn’t have live music or pirates walking around, but it does have a lot full of new and pre-owned vehicles! Along with the amazing cars, take advantage of extras like free lifetime state inspections for your vehicle. That is definitely worth getting excited about.
