Buzz worthy in Burleson

The city of Burleson was all a buzz last week due to the grand opening festivities of Honda of Burleson.

Burleson Mayor, Ken Shetter, congratulated Honda of Burleson owners Henry Coffeen and Ken Schnitzer Thursday night during the first of two opening celebrations. He commended them both for bringing such a world class organization to the area which will employ over one hundred workers and for having the foresight to build for Burleson's future which is growing rapidly.

Guests at Thursday night's event enjoyed a champagne reception, sumptuous food and entertainment by the Marc Toussaint Trio. Party goers even had a chance to rub elbows with characters from the Honda Civic National Ad Campaign "To Each Their Own" including the Ninja, The Zombie, The Woodsman and Cesar, the Champion Luchador.

Saturday's Family Festival which was open to the public featured complimentary food provided by local favorite, Fuzzy's Taco Shop. Children enjoyed activities like dancing with the DJ, bounce houses, rock climbing wall, face painting, balloon artist and build your own cupcakes….. not to mention the Sno Cones which kept young and old alike cool during the hot afternoon sun.

Everyone also buzzed about and enjoyed the late afternoon air show which featured vintage planes and an aerial performance. The Zach Heffley Jazz Quintet then entertained guests until the party concluded at 7pm.

Henry Coffeen and Ken Schnitzer were delighted that over 600 guests and their families were able to visit the new dealership and felt like the public had a chance to see for themselves why Honda of Burleson is a dealership experience worth talking about.
