Special Events

  1. Frost Fest

    January 28, 2017, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM @ Cimarron Park

    Winters in Texas can mean anything from cold rain to black ice, but rarely include the fluffy white snow seen up north. This year, bring the family to Cimarron Park for a taste of the fun side of winter!

    Frost Fest is a free winter festival offering an opportunity to indulge in various cold weather activities. Visit the reindeer at the petting zoo, try skating on the festival rink, play in the snow area and slide down the hill. The entertainment continues with snow dance parties, winter story readings and our own version of the Polar Express train.

    Food vendors will be on-site; parking and admission are free.

This class will provide a greater understanding about monarchs and other pollinators, what are the easiest plants to grow in this area, and how residents can build their own certified habitat gardens to attract birds and butterflies.
