The Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV is happy to announce that we will be hosting our 4th annual Christmas in the Park Event. This event is open to the entire community and is an opportunity for children to enjoy a day filled with fun outside activities including playing in the snow.

Christmas in the Park will be held at the Edinburg Municipal Park located at 714 S. Raul Longoria Rd. on Saturday, Dec. 18. The event will kick off at 10 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.

Christmas in the Park includes a visit with Santa, where children are presented with a gift. There are many activities for the children to enjoy such as snow fun, mini carnival games including ring toss, duck pond, and many others. We will also have bouncers. There will be music, free food and refreshments. We invite everyone to come out for a fun filled day at the park!

At this event we will hold our Treasure Chest Raffle where schools who met our 100 percent enrollment goal have an opportunity to win $5,000. Only Edinburg schools who met this goal will have the chance to have their name drawn for their school. If a lucky school is chosen they win $5,000 provided by Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV to be spent at Gateway Printing & Office Supply for use in buying supplies for their school. Congratulations to2008 lucky winner, E.B. Guerra Elementary. This past summer Principal Sandra Avila was still happily purchasing items for her school.
