The Meadows Center Glass Bottom Boat Tours

7:00pm-11:30pm; Tickets available HERE or call (512) 825-2819 for more information
The Meadows Center sits on the site of an environmentally, culturally, and archaeologically significant resource and headwaters to the San Marcos River, Spring Lake. The former Spring Lake Resort at Aquarena Springs, the ‘original home of the San Marcos Mermaids’, will come to life with a magical evening paying tribute to the enchanted world of Mother River. This highly anticipated “city gala” is expected to sell-out again this year with 500 guests in attendance. Similar to the MET Gala, creatively inspired evening wear is highly encouraged that pays tribute to our beloved San Marcos river and the arts.

This private evening includes starry night rooftop views, sunset glass bottom boat cruises, live music, dancing, dining, specialty cocktails, live art performances and more.
