This weekend the City of San Marcos hosted their annual July Fourth celebration, SummerFest, where residents were able to enjoy live music, food and activities.

The celebration kicked off around 6 p.m. where the Children’s Parade began shortly after and led straight into the Costume Contest.

Attendees included Hays County residents, San Marcos City Council members and special guest Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott who helped launch the SummerFest celebration with special remarks.

Governor Abbott visited San Marcos and Wimberley immediately following the Memorial Weekend flooding where he was able to see the damage done to Hays County and speak with residents about the troubles they faced.

“A month and a half ago when you faced this unprecedented challenge where we saw, neighbor helping neighbor, strangers helping people they had never even met before, but one of the most profound things I saw was atop rubble, of what used to be a house, was an American flag that was flying, showing the strength and character, and indomitable spirit of Americans and people who live in Hays County. So the First Lady and I wanted to come here and say, thank you, God bless you for standing for the spirit of the United States of America and may you continue the traditions that have kept this country the strongest, the best, the freest country in the history of this world. God bless you all and enjoy the Fourth of July.”

Following Abbott’s remarks, the SummerFest Celebration continued with headliner David Ybarra and a firework show. For more information on the City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation events you can visit the official City website at: http://www.ci.san-marcos.tx.us/index.aspx
