Southlake Celebrates the Start of Summer

May 31, 2016 09:04AM ● By Editorial Intern f

It’s summertime, and here at Southlake Style, we look forward to seeing all the events our town has in store for our children and families. Although the Texas heat can feel unbearable at times, enjoying the sun’s rays and spending time with our loved ones makes the potential sunburn worth it. Many of us can relate to being stuck in a stuffy office with hardly any windows year-round; once summer approaches, we have almost forgotten the multitude of festivities enjoyed during the sunny season.

On Saturday, June 4, Southlake Community Services welcomes children and families to Southlake Town Square for the ninth annual Southlake Summer Kickoff. The event is free to attend and will be held at Family Park in front of Town Hall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Along with running around with Minions and being introduced to Blackland Prairie Raptors, children will also have the chance to register for Summer Reading Club while enjoying some free Rita’s Italian Ice, a Southlake favorite. The Space Rockers will also be performing live and the J. Tiger Martial Arts team will be sharing some of their martial arts secrets.

Children will also have the opportunity to explore the Department of Public Safety’s vehicles, as well as get their faces professionally painted. There will be plenty of games to play and crafts to make that will be sure to keep your kids busy so you can enjoy the warm, summer weather while eating some delicious Italian ice. Inflatables will be available to children and balloon artists will ensure that kids are having the time of their lives. Better yet, if you sign up for Southlake Summer Reading on the first day, you have a chance to win an exclusive prize.

In need of additional summer activities for your children? Have no fear; Southlake Recreation will also be available to discuss the numerous summer classes and activities Southlake has to offer.

Southlake’s Summer Kickoff will be sure to give you and your family a much-needed vacation from life’s responsibilities; what better way to celebrate the season than by indulging in Rita’s while watching some live entertainment.
