May be the most poorly organized festival in Houston. 100% frozen margaritas and 1/2 of the machines didn't work. The most popular drink booth (the pineapple hut) had such a huge line all day that it was difficult to move around. Organizers should consult the team that runs Beerfest to get a clue how it should be done.

If they were opening at noon they should have had things ready by opening. At 2pm there were still unfrozen margaritas. They did the limbo contest on the ground and announced it on the stage. So you could see the lady announcing but not the competition. There were too many cheap or scammy vendors.

About Margarita Festival

Margarita Festival’s organizers throw a party based on a combination almost as classic as tequila, salt, and citrus: drinks, music, and sunshine. In the crisp fall air, guests sample a variety of traditional and flavored margaritas, from samples to full-size premium drinks using top-shelf liquors. The fest also hosts salsa and limbo competitions with cash prizes and trophies for the winners. Although the winner of the limbo competition is determined by the deepest back bend, the organizers use an Apollo-style judging system for the salsa event, with the winners chosen by the loudest cheer from the crowd or the brightest spotlight from the sun.
