BANGS, TX – SMALL TOWN USA FOR A DAY OR FOR A LIFETIME Letter From The Mayor They say home is where the heart is. And from my childhood memories of spending summers and holidays here while growing up in West Texas to the recent memories of eagerly waiting for the first gallon of recycled water to start filling our 3 million gallon pond or of throwing out the first pitch at the new Bangs Event Center last spring my heart seems to have always been in Bangs, Texas. Let me invite you visit Bangs and see for yourself the warmth that comes with living where neighbors still look out for one another with the same care and compassion of yesteryear. Whether it’s for a day or for a lifetime, our little town is a special place. Mayfest - our annual festival the first Saturday each May – is a pilgrimage to town where our population doubles for a day. In its 21st year, it regularly rivals Bangs High School’s homecoming for the largest local event each year. And the Bangs Event Center was the scene of last to this year’s 9 and under state baseball tournament just a season after that first pitch. We have a tremendous school system with top notch athletic and academic teams year in and year out. Our city slogan is Bangs, TX – Small Town USA, and whether you’re looking for a place to spend a day or spend a lifetime, our community’s spirit backs up those words. We’re minutes away from world class hunting and fishing and our housing is very affordable.
Visit and enjoy Bangs. You’ll be glad you did. Sincerely,
Eric Bishop Mayor of Bangs
