National queens join in fete of their own community!

 Looking bright and cheery in yellow, Wendy Thiery, BOA 40s and Vanessa Cantu, BOA 30s appeared in the 46th Annual Helotes Cornyval Parade. Growing up in Helotes, Wendy held the title of Miss Helotes in 1983 while Vanessa currently resides in Helotes.  Both Wendy and Vanessa enjoy being involved in their community. Taking part in the Helotes Cornyval parade was fun and exciting while promoting Beauties of America!

Helotes is located just northwest of San Antonio, Texas and was incorporated in 1981. Helotes, whose name is derived from the Spanish word elotes or “corn-on-the-cob,” has been on Texas maps since the nineteenth century.  Once inhabited by Lipan Apaches, Tonkawas, and Comanches, the city originally served as a stagecoach stop between San Antonio and Bandera.

For decades, Helotes remained a farming community. The opening of the famous John T. Floore County Store in 1946 marked a turn towards commerce and economic growth.  The dance hall is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a Texas Historic Landmark that draws top musical talent to its stages.

Today, the City of Helotes is unique community that maintains its small town tranquility and family-oriented activities.  Citizens remain committed to economic prosperity while balancing environmental consciousness and historic preservation and modern revitalization.
Helotes in Bexar County has been rated the Best Small Town to Raise Kids in Texas by Bloomberg Business Week.
