HMT's Stephen Hanz is well known for his Opa status for Wurstfest, so much that his family was used in a recent commecrial for New Braunfels.
What does it take to be an Opa?
Well for one, you must have lived in New Braunfels for 15+ years, and Stephan grew up in New Braunfels (Go Unicorns!). Wurstfest Opas are dedicated to service within the New Braunfels community. Many are active members in faith-based and other humanitarian organizations and volunteer their time for the betterment our our city. Also, every Opa volunteers 25-30 hours of his own time to help the annual Wusrtfest event run smoothly.
