Family-Friendly Things To Do In and Around Schertz This Summer

May 26 2022

Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out.

Summer in Texas can be brutal and with record-breaking May temperatures, we’re here to give you some tips for a successful summer in Schertz.

One key component of any outdoor activity is Sun Protection. It’s critical to cover up in UV blockers, especially during the hot months in Texas. Here are some sun protection tips:

All the rays. Make sure your sunblock has UVA and UVB protection.

Always use SPF 30 or higher. Nowadays most major brands carry sunblock in 100 SPF. Make sure to reapply throughout the day.

Cover up. Hats, sunglasses, and bandanas help to deflect those harmful rays enormously while also keeping you cool.

Ears and Toes. These are frequently missed spots when sunblock is applied. Make sure you get them good and slathered, especially the tops of your ears and toes.

Fun Summer Activities in Schertz

Music & Movies In The Park

Did you know that each year The Crossvine sponsors six featured movies and two live music events at different Schertz area parks? With movie trivia and themed prizes, families are sure to enjoy the evening outdoors.

Residents are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, refreshments, friends, and neighbors out for a free day of fun and entertainment.

The first movie of the summer will be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on June 11th at Heritage Oaks Park. Click here for the full schedule.

Scavenger Hunt at Pickrell Park

The Schertz Public Library has the perfect way to enrich your kid's minds this summer by hosting a Scavenger Hunt at Pickrell Park. Participants will search for treasure (in the form of words) and complete a journal sheet. All participants who return the completed pirate journal sheet by 5 pm on June 29th will get a completion prize.

Library staff will be at the park from 11 AM-12 PM with popsicles and pirate journals. After 12 PM, journal sheets can be picked up at the library.

The 46th Annual July Jubilee

There’s nothing like the 46th Annual July Jubilee event at Pickrell Park. This family-friendly event happening on July 4th features live music, kids' activities, and festival food.

In addition to the Jubilee, there will be a Float and Fireworks event put on by Schertz City Hall. Participants will enjoy the show from the cool waters of the pool while lounging on patriotic pool noodles. Reserve your place for the coolest seat in the house during the 4th of July Jubilee Fireworks Spectacular!
