Kerrville’s Parks and Recreation Department will host it’s annual “Get Outdoors Day” event on June 9 from 11 AM- 3 PM at Louise Hays Park. Admission is free to the public.
“The goal of this event is to reconnect our youth and families to the great outdoors through traditional and nontraditional programming and recreation activities,” Parks and Recreation Director Ashlea Boyle said. “We have a beautiful parks system. Let’s put down the electronics, grab your family and friends, get outdoors and have a good time.”
Outdoor activities promoting health and adventure will take place throughout the event. These activities will include, but are not limited to:
- fitness classes in the park, such as: Kroc Center Zumba, Team Beauty Fitness Dancing, Cardio Kickboxing from P31 Fitness, and boot camp from Camp Gladiator;
- bubble soccer, bounce houses, dunking booths and Nerf Wars;
- arts and crafts, Bicycle Rodeo, and nature walks;
- animal education and petting zoos;
- food trucks and farmers market vendors.
There will be a Kerrville Craft Beer Run and a sand volleyball tournament (registration fees apply). The Craft Beer Run, a 5K along the River Trail Sponsored by Pint & Plow and Basement Brewers of Texas, begins at 9:30 a.m. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
