San Marcos Neighborhood All-Star Games

Join us for good, old-fashioned fun neighborhood vs neighborhood style! The San Marcos Neighborhood All-Star Games (SNAG) was established in 2012. After a brief hiatus, we are bringing it back on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9am to 1pm at Rio Vista Park! Games include sack race, tug-o-war, corn hole, putt putt golf, dominoes, giant connect four, giant checkers, pie eating, and various relays. $25 entry fee per team. Teams are made up of people that live in your neighborhood. There must be a minimum of 8 people per team with a minimum of 2 children under 12 and one adult over 65. More than one team is allowed per neighborhood but participants are only allowed to be on one team. After all the friendly competition, we will have an awards ceremony and lunch. The winners will be announced and awards will be given for best team costume/team spirit. Entry forms can be found here. For more information, contact the SNAG committee by emailing jmach@sanmarcostx.gov. If you are interested in volunteering, sign up here.
