Labor Day Weekend Fun in the Canyon Lake – New Braunfels Area.
Labor Day Weekend in Canyon Lake and New Braunfels
With the weather pushing the 100 degree mark in the Texas Hill Country, in the clear blue waters of Canyon Lake or floating down the Guadalupe River might be the best places to be this Labor Day Weekend, but if you are not in the mood to swim, sail, jet ski, fish or tube there are some other great activities for your enjoyment in the area that will keep you busy and smiling!
Landa Park, Live Music, and Art
Landa Park: Three Activities
Landa Park offers an array of free activities for families. Activities include the free Thursday Night Concert. Every Thursday evening beginning at 7:30 PM, bring your family, lawn chairs and picnic and enjoy great music in the beautiful outdoors. Listen to local musicians perform a variety of music that ranges from country and rock-n-roll to jazz and ballads.
Another activity within the park is the hike and bike Dry Comal Trail. The trail gives access to numerous types of habitats. Start by entering a river-bottom habitat, stroll through a densely wooded area sighting white-tailed deer and other wildlife, and finally climb a rocky hill leading to a cedar-grassland type habitat with prickly pear and mesquite trees.
Try Landa’s Park Boat House and Miniature Golf. The Boat House offers visitors an enjoyable way to tour the lake, home of the Comal Springs, and the miniature golf course boasts 18 challenging golf holes for your family’s enjoyment.
