The goals of Sirena Festival are to honor the Legend of Sirena, share the wonder of Salado with others, educate children about creek habitat and wildlife (conservation), and raise money for a local nonprofit.
This year's non-profit will be Keep Salado Beautiful. Funds raised will go towards their current work around Pace Park and the Sculpture Garden.
This family friendly event will start with a
small parade starting at Pace Park and end near the tennis courts. After the parade, the festival will commence! The main grounds will be the creekside property below Rosanky's. There will be mermaids in the creek, stilt walkers, giant bubbles, and jugglers- a whimsical atmosphere. There will also be face painters, food trucks, arts & activities.
We will have UMHB professors and Fish & Wildlife Service professionals educational booths as well as Salado Museum represented.
