Spring Break is making a small comeback in Marble Falls. Canceled last year, the city will have at least one activity for students during the school holiday, which is March 15-19. 

UPDATE: The city will screen the animated family-friendly movie “The Croods” at 7:45 p.m. Friday, March 19, at Johnson Park, 230 Avenue J South, said Marble Falls Parks and Recreation Director Lacey Dingman at a parks and recreation commission meeting March 1.

In addition, Elevate Church of Marble Falls will host its annual skatepark event from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 16, at Falls Creek Skatepark, 900 Yett St. 

Spring Break 2020 was canceled last March over COVID-19 concerns. A year into the pandemic, the city’s Spring Break partners are hesitant to participate, Dingman said. 

She also noted that the $14,000 spent on Spring Break activities could fund other recreational events. 

“Moving into this year, we had already talked about revamping our approach to Spring Break,” Dingman said. “We’re trying to spread those funds out through the year versus spending considerable amounts all in one week.”
