Upcoming Events

Saturday would be a good time to take your offspring to Guadalupe River State Park. In the morning you can borrow some nets from park staff and go out to catch grasshoppers, butterflies and other insects. At night there will be a star gazing party with loaner telescopes available for you to use. During the afternoon you can swim in the river to escape this oppressive heat wave that has been torturing us. You can do all of that for just the price of admission into the park, and that is a pretty good deal. Have fun and for the love of Pete be sure to drink a lot of water.

Still looks like this weekend will be a good time to head to the swimming holes. Our pick for this weekend is the JJ Stokes Park in San Marcos. At the park you will be able to enjoy the exhilarating spring-fed river and there probably will not be a lot of people around if you go early. Take River Road to Cape Street. Have fun.

If you want to brush up on your fishing technique or get some assistance in teaching your kids how to fish, then maybe you should head over to South Llano River State Park on Sunday. That morning they will be leading free fishing lessons. All you have to do is pay the price of admission. They will also provide the poles and bait and you don’t even need a fishing lesson. Have fun.
