Music in the Park tonight features Crystal Yates
Head to Pfluger Park to enjoy live music from Crystal Yates at the kickoff concert for Music in the Park.
After growing up in Niceville, Florida, Yates moved to McKinney, TX and
couldn't resist the twangy sounds of country music. "My mom says I could
sing 'Why Don't You Love Me?' by Hank Williams before I could say my
ABCs." Her latest album debuted at #13 on iTunes.
With giant shade trees and a playground, Pfluger Park is a great site to
take the family to listen. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and the family
and come enjoy the music. Food and concession sales begin at 6:30 p.m.
Concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Pets allowed on a leash. See the full summer
lineup at www.pflugervilletx.gov/musicinthepark.

Go play gaga ball
celebration of Parks and Recreation Month, the City of Pflugerville
invites you to play gaga ball at one of three gaga ball pits now
available in city parks. They are located at Heritage Park, Pfluger Park
and Windermere Park. This very popular game in the city's summer pfun
kids camp is played similar to dodge ball. Players enter the pit and the
ball is bounced. After the second hit, the ball is in play. Players hit
the ball and try to strike each other below the waist to get people
"out" of the game. The last one remaining in the pit wins. This dodge
ball style game is tons of fun. Go enjoy your parks for parks and
recreation month and try a game of gaga ball.
