The Downtown Association announced after its May 6 Board Meeting that it is launching a new Walkabout event to coincide with the current downtown San Marcos second Saturday line up each month beginning Saturday, June 8. The new Downtown Walkabout event will now help cap-off a series of standing monthly events with a late afternoon and early evening component -- giving a wider variety of folks an opportunity to enjoy downtown San Marcos from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and beyond.
“Our ultimate goal is to create enough energy that our guests spend the entire weekend,” said Jean Baggett, Downtown Association Board Chair. “We envision visitors taking in all the fun of the whole second Saturday lineup downtown and then spending the night to take in a Glass Bottom Boat Tour, float the River, hike our trails, take in Wonder World Cave or hit the outlet malls on Sunday,” she added.
Each second Saturday downtown San Marcos visitors can enjoy an array of free, family-friendly activities including the San Marcos Farmer's Market, a curated artisan market on the courthouse square (Art Squared), a community market (San Mercado) and, now, the Downtown Walkabout.
The Downtown Walkabout features businesses with expanded hours or specials, street artisans and pop-up shops, free pedicab rides, live outdoor music from KZSM, and more as residents and visitors alike are invited to “Eat, Stroll, and Vibe” as they walkabout downtown.
