Tom Tom Festival
Salute To The City Of Yoakum, Texas
13 July 1999    1999 Ron Paul 73:4
Once, Yoakum was the “Green Wrap” tomato capita of the world and still commemorates this heritage with the annual “Tom Tom Festival.” As that industry faded, the community leaders — namely Mr. C. C. Welhausen — fostered the idea that Yoakum needed another industry as a base to its economy. The result: a leather industry era that now employs some 1,500 and produces millions of dollars of the Yoakum area economy.
