Parks and recreation officials will go forward with plans for the 2020 Spring Break Program with a couple of modifications as a result of concerns by outside entities about the coronavirus.

The upcoming events March 16-20 will be conducted at local community parks – Johnson, Falls Creek, Lakeside and Westside. Local business owners throughout the city are donating their time to assist with the program.

As of today (March 12), Spring Break 2020 will continue as scheduled minus a few schedule changes,” Parks and Recreation Director Lacey Dingman said in a statement from the municipality. “The Wild Things Zoofari animal event (on Friday) has been canceled by the Marble Falls Public Library.” (See story about the library program changes on page 1.)

Also, the Home Depot Craft Workshop has been converted to a grab-and-go event,” she stated, clarifying that building workshop would not be conducted on the site of the store as it had been in years past. “Both of these decisions were made by Home Depot and library officials as a means of remaining proactive towards public health.”
