(Houston, Texas – Aug. 8, 2022) – Road races, a triathlon for kids and an ‘aquathon’ for adults and teenagers are all part of a weekend of athletic events during the Lago Mar Multisport Festival on Saturday, Aug. 20, and Sunday, Aug. 21, at Lagoonfest Texas.

“This is a great event, whether your family and friends are taking part in the events, or you just enjoy watching some good family-friendly activities at a staycay summer venue,” said Uri Man, Chief Executive Officer of The Lagoon Development Company. “This is the only such race at a crystal clear lagoon in North America, with the clear waters enhancing safety for the racers. The competitors can focus on improving their performances; they are not racing against sharks or jellyfish which are clearly absent from our lagoons!”

Race Director Ron Stitt concurs, saying that it makes “a huge difference” for competitors.

“The swim portion of triathlons and aquathons are usually held in the ocean or a lake where visibility is low and there are other dangers,” Stitt said. “Racers being able to sight and see buoys is important, so hosting the swim portion in crystal clear water is a big deal.”

Racers get free Lagoonfest Texas day passes, along with discounted food, drinks and activities — with spectators able to purchase entry tickets at a discount.

Those who want to race and compete can register now at www.lagoonfesttexas.com and click on the Lago Mar Multisport Festival link at the top of the home page. Race packet pick-up is from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 20, at the lagoon at the Lago Mar community entrance gate, located at 3240 Lago Mar Blvd. in Texas City, Texas, and the mornings of each event day.

Race fees range from $52 to $99, depending on the selected event. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal, photos and race shirt or hat.

All races and other activities take place at Lagoonfest Texas at the following times and dates:

Saturday, Aug. 20 (5K & 10K Road Race and Youth Triathlon) — Racers of all ages can participate in either road race. For the youth triathlon, those age 6 to 10 will compete in a 75-yard swim, two-mile bike ride and three-quarter-mile run, while competitors aged 11 to 15 will swim 150 yards, bike for 4 miles and run for 1.5 miles.

(Houston, Texas – Aug. 2, 2022) – Completing several months of renovation to enhance the visitor experience, Lagoonfest Texas starts August with opening several new amenities, the return of more beachfront and several discount programs offered throughout the month.

“With the expansion of our parking lot completed, we are reopening the southern shore of our lagoon, which doubles the size of both our beaches and swim zones,” said Uri Man, Chief Executive Officer of The Lagoon Development Company. “We are reopening the island area for guests, as well.”

A ribbon cutting is planned at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7, at the entrance gate.

In addition, Lagoonfest is introducing rooftop cabanas — creating six private rooftop decks for guests that offer all-inclusive packages for food and refreshments.

Officials also announced ‘Teacher Appreciation Month” for the entire month of August — giving two-for-one admission prices that are available at the admission gate for guests who show their school identification. Man said the offer is for any school employee — not just teachers.

The venue is also continuing its “End of Summer Special” that offers late-day guests $15 admission from 4 to 6 p.m. and $10 admission from 6 to 8 p.m.

“Our mini circus events, featuring the second-generation clown Kampanilla — along with beautiful aerialist Marilyn and balance performances by Joel — continue each day through August 14, and we’re excited to soon announce many other upcoming events for people to enjoy at Lagoonfest Texas through the end of summer,” Man said.

With New Arrivals, Lagoonfest Texas Has the Largest Number of Floating Cabanas in North America

(Texas City, Texas – July 11, 2022) – Touted as a “game-changer” when it introduced the unique floating cabanas last summer, Lagoonfest Texas can now boast that it has the largest ‘fleet’ of floating cabanas in North America.

 

With the arrival of 18 new floating cabanas, Lagoonfest now has a total of 22 on its 12-acre lagoon. 

 

The collection includes picnic cabanas with a center table with drink holders, shaded seating and a king lounger for tanning. Party cabanas are three floating cabanas connected to a center inflatable island. In all, they are more than 370 feet long and can accommodate more than 180 people at once.

 

“When we first introduced them last year, they were the first floating cabanas to be featured on a Crystal Lagoons® amenity in Texas,” said Uri Man, Chief Executive Officer of The Lagoon Development Company. “They have proven to be so popular with our guests, and are so unique and versatile, we just had to bring in a lot more of them for people to enjoy. I don’t think there is another collection this large in all of North America.”

 

Man said the party cabanas would be perfect for large groups or birthday parties — another popular request at Lagoonfest Texas.

 

Prices for the day-long floating cabana rentals start at $450. 

 

At 12 acres, the Lago Mar lagoon is the state’s largest, and it offers the most shoreline of any lagoon in the nation. It holds 24 million gallons of water and the lagoon’s liner system is large enough to cover the entire Houston Galleria mall or 14 NFL football fields. The lagoon surface is equivalent to an approximate 1,350 home swimming pools.

 

Located at 12600 Crystal View Boulevard in Texas City, Lagoonfest Texas is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays as well as 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays. Individual ticket prices start at $22. Season passes also are available starting at $69.

 

Guests can rent kayaks, sailboats, stand-up paddleboards and bumper boats, as well as test their skill on the floating obstacle course and race down the 42-foot Titan slide. Food and a full bar are also available.

 

More information and tickets are available at www.lagoonfesttexas.com
