Last year's Perseid meteor shower viewing received approximately 1,200 participants. The program consisted of a tram ride to several stations within the park, which had family activities geared to educate the public about South Texas wildlife. There is also a tour up to a watch tower that oversees the resacas from above the treeline. From there, the park rangers can locate and illuminate bats that are in the area, in addition to other wildlife.
It is recommended that visitors have some mosquito repellent and a bottled water handy. There is some hiking through wooded areas involved in the tour; sensible shoes are a definite must-have. A small flashlight is helpful, especially when going through the wooded areas. The park will also sell glow bracelets and necklaces, which are a good idea for keeping track of your young ones.
Contact the Bentsen - Rio Grande Valley State Park at 956-584-9156 for more details.

This year, the weather is great and there is a great breeze. If you make your way down to Municipal Park, grab a good spot and wait for the fireworks to start.
There will be music to accompany the fireworks show. Tune in to KVLY 107.9 FM rio listen to the show.
There are food vendors and a Kiddie Carnival. Other than maybe a couple of folding chairs, you can pack light.
There are Port-a-potties near the far side of the park, full facilities are on the Bicentennial side.
