This Friday and Saturday marks the return of the Bloomin' Temple Festival in Temple, Texas, but it'll look a little bit different this year.

Let The Fun Begin

Bloomin' Temple Festival is back this year after a couple of years off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but with a new name and a new location.  "Market Trail Medley: A Lil' Bit O' Bloomin" is set to kick off on Friday and Saturday.

Why the name change? According to Temple Parks website, the name change is temporary as they've had to move the location while construction continues at the MLK Festival Grounds.
