A Note From Board member Byron Berkus

During our last Neighborhood Association Meeting, we discussed ways for us to come together as a community.  One family fun idea I would like to suggest is participating and/or enjoying the 3rd Annual Mission Reach Flotilla Festival.  Flotilla is a FREE, family-friendly, Fiesta-on-the-Mission-Reach event held by The San Antonio River Foundation, in partnership with the San Antonio River Authority.  The purpose of the event is to bring awareness to the newly developed Mission Reach Ecosystem Restoration and Recreation Project of the San Antonio River, including over 15-miles of hike and bike trails, pavilions and other outdoor recreation amenities the Mission Reach has to offer. It is a great way to spend part of your day outside on our beautiful San Antonio River, while listening to fabulous music, enjoying delicious food from local vendors, shopping a craft mercado, and watching kids experience the festival activities.  Flotilla also includes a water parade, costume contest, and watercraft decorating contest.  The winner of the watercraft decorating contest wins a $1,000 Grand Prize, which I considering entering with my two kayaks, and giving the money to the Neighborhood Association if fortunate enough to win.
Floatilla takes place on Saturday, April 8, between 11am-5pm at the Mission County Park Pavilions.

Visit www.MissionReachFlotillaFestival.org for entry details for the Flotilla water parade, costume contest, and watercraft decorating contest.
Please let me know if you might be interested in participating.
