Bbbc Valentine Web 900X600

From the Annals of Love –  In 1882, the town of Valentine in Jeff Davis County was founded when crews building the Southern Pacific Railway reached the outpost on St. Valentine’s Day.  Valentine is the only incorporated municipality in Jeff Davis County.  The town capitalizes on its name with a Valentine’s Day Celebration hosted by the Big Bend Brewing Company at the Old Mercantile Building.  This year is Local’s Night with a lineup that includes Doug Moreland Band, The Doodlin’ Hogwallops, and Beebe & Carrasco.
