Oktober Lagoonfest at Lago Mar—located at 3240 Lago Mar Blvd., Texas City—will bring a fall-themed twist to the various activities available at the 12-acre lagoon. Guests at Oktober Lagoonfest will be able to access an inflatable obstacle course, go kayaking and sailing and use electric jetboards and stand-up paddleboards, per the release.
“We are lucky to be located in the Houston area where temperatures are mild enough to extend the season for warm-weather fun,” said Uri Man, the executive vice president of Lago Mar’s developer, Land Tejas, in the release. “Throughout the summer, visitors to our lagoon enjoyed kayaking, swimming and relaxing on our white-sand beaches. We’re excited to continue the experience as the weather allows.”
Bay Area residents can visit the lagoon Oct. 2-Nov. 1 on Fridays from 11 a.m.-sunset and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m.-sunset. Friday admissions include free yoga and high-intensity interval training cardio classes at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m., per the release.
Craft beers will be available for purchase each day from the Tap Truck, and food trucks will be on hand with a varied menu, including fall-themed items. Scheduled trucks include True Dog gourmet hot dogs and fries, Kurbside Eatz Asian Fusion, Pit King BBQ, Mr. Sizzles gourmet burgers and Gelü Artisan Italian Ice. Cocktails and frozen drinks also will be available for purchase.
Tickets start at $10 for children under age 13 and $15 for those ages 13 and older. Special savings are available on Fridays, and tickets prices are subject to change. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.oktoberlagoonfest.com.
The lagoon has operated at reduced capacity to allow for adequate social distancing, and face masks are required for entry as well as in designated common areas. Staff will also wear masks and undergo daily health screenings. Beach and lawn furniture will be cleaned regularly, and all restrooms and other high-traffic areas will be sanitized frequently.
Future phases of development around the lagoon are planned to include hotels, condo buildings, retail, dining and entertainment as well as a separate pay-for-access beach club. Public access will eventually include multiple beaches; a cabana pool; a two-story, swim-up bar on an island; a kid’s beach with water features; a floating obstacle course; and a water sports facility with kayaks, paddleboards and small sailboats, per the release. There is also an event center planned with a beachfront event lawn for corporate events, weddings and concerts.
