It is nearly eclipse day! Join us for our eclipse viewing party where we will have crafts for children, a NASA photo live stream, music, and free solar eclipse glasses. We are expecting a large crowd for our viewing eclipse party so here are a few things to consider:
1. We will be giving out glasses first come, first serve beginning at noon. One pair of glasses will be given per person and all participants must be present to receive glasses.
2. Make sure to leave time for parking. We are located in downtown Buda and have limited parking. There is parking available along Main Street located adjacent to City Hall. City Park is a short walk away with additional parking.
3. The maximum coverage of the sun (partial eclipse) will be at 1:10 pm and will last about 2 minutes
Did you know that the City of Buda website has a notify me feature? It allows you to sign up for email and text notifications for specific information such as: EMERGENCY ALERTS, press releases, City news, City Council agendas, bond updates, emergency alerts, etc. You can find the notify me button on the homepage of our website at www.ci.buda.tx.us .
All you have to do is enter your email and/or phone number and select the categories you wish to receive information on. Also, you can register for warning alerts from the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG). They will send a text, email, and even call with a recorded message of the specific alert.
We’ve included the link for you below:

It is with a heavy heart that we share that our dear Mrs. Helen has been called home. The matriarch of Buda lived 93 amazing years and was the proud owner of the oldest restaurant in town.
Our city will shine a little dimmer without her sweet smile and soft-spoken demeanor. She loved her customers so much and could remember almost anyone she has met over our 37 years in business. You were all her family and lived in a very special place in her heart.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during this time.
