Southlake Kicks Off Summer

It’s time for Southlake to kick off its summer fun for families by hosting the Southlake Summer Kickoff event.

On June 4, 2016, join the Southlake Library, Recreation, The Marq and more to celebrate summer with the Minions, the Space Rockers, Blackland Prairie Raptors, and J. Tiger Martial Arts. This free event is held in Family Park in front of Southlake Town Hall from 10 AM – 1 PM.

Activities include exploring DPS vehicles, games, crafts, inflatables, airbrush face painting, balloon artists and so much more. Free frozen treats from Rita’s while they last.

Building Safety Day is an international celebration of safe, sustainable structures and a public awareness campaign to help children and families learn backyard and swimming pool safety. Our themes this year are “Building Solutions for All Ages,” “The Science Behind the Codes,” “Learn from the Past, Build for Tomorrow,” and “Building Codes.” Building Inspectors and Code Enforcement Officers will be available to answer questions and provide free activity books, inspector badges and swimming pool safety materials.

Stop by and sign up for Southlake Summer Reading on the first day for a chance to win a special prize. Visit with Southlake Recreation to explore summer classes and activities. Discover free family activities at The Marq Southlake, and learn more about building safety. Don’t miss this once a year event!
