Night Tubing and Cookout on the Comal RiverJun 10,**Ticket purchaes and RSVP function for non-members for this event will be activated on 4/1** you must RSVP on our website

Last year we had over 500 people attend this event so come join us at Texas Tubes in New Braunfels on Saturday, 6/10 for a moonlight tubing trip on the Comal River. This is usually our biggest event of the year. We will start the cookout at 6:00 PM, and get on the river around dusk. If the sky is clear we should have a nice full moon. Regardless, the lights of New Braunfels provide plenty of visibility if it is cloudy. We should be done by about 11:00 PM, give or take. The float usually takes a couple of hours depending on the river flow rate. After the float we will go to one of the local downtown nightspots just a few blocks from Texas Tubes.

The Comal River, at about 2 1/2 miles in length, is claimed to be the shortest river in the world. It is entirely within the city limits of New Braunfels until it joins the Guadalupe River just upstream from IH 35. It has a year-round temperature of 72 degrees, and is quite comfortable on a hot Texas Summer evening.

Costs for Members $26.95

Cost for Non-Members $31.95

Included in the price is tube rental, shuttle, dinner, sodas, bottle water and 2 drink tickets for the draft beer, and your glow necklaces. Texas Tubes also provides our group with free tubes for coolers. We will be serving food along with veggie & fruit trays, etc., as well as a keg of Dos XX, soft drinks and water. You are also welcome to bring anything to share if you like, but it is not required. BYOB on the adult beverages other than the keg. You may want to bring a lawn chair for the food. Feel free to bring extra glow necklaces, bracelets, earrings, bunny ears, etc. The more we have the more of a spectacle it is on the river. You can get the glow stuff at Party City.

Remember, no glass or styrofoam is allowed on any Texas river. There are a number of other regulations in place regarding the Comal including no containers under 5 fluid ounces, no volume drinking devices like beer bongs, coolers must be no larger than 16 quarts and have a locking lid, as well as other rules. To see the full list of rules regarding the Comal River see the city of New Braunfels'' Water the Rules website. Jello shots are fine at Texas Tubes, but not allowed on the river.

Texas Tubes does not allow outside tubes. In other words, you must use a tube from Texas Tubes.

If you get cold easily, you might want to consider wearing some type of windbreaker or rain gear. They are usually made of nylon or pvc and dry quickly. A cotton shirt will just hold water next to your skin and keep you cooler. You can even wear a wetsuit if you wish.

Wear some good river shoes in case you have to stand in the river. For sandals, they should have a heel strap. Flip-flops come off really easily in the river and are virtually useless.

If you do not want to lose it, do not take it on the river. Texas Tubes has a place for you to leave your keys, but they will ask for your driver's license to put with it.

Texas Tubes has remote parking lots that are close to Texas Tubes. They are selling wristbands there. Do NOT buy one. Be sure to wait until you get to the Adventure Club registration table at the back of the Texas Tubes property to get your wristband.

Parking can be a pain at Texas Tubes, carpooling is recommended. Recommended carpool location/time is Starbucks at The Forum at 1604 & 35. at 3:45 PM for Cookout & Night Float. There is not anyone officially leading carpooling, but if you go there meet at the tables right outside the front door of Starbucks. Be sure to only ride with someone who is planning on returning at the same time as you are. Give them gas money if you ride with someone else!

Although this is a very safe stretch of river, if you are not a strong swimmer it is recommended that you wear a life jacket. Texas Tubes provides them for free.

If you are planning on staying in New Braunfels overnight, you should make hotel or camping reservations as early as possible. A suggested place to camp is Landa RV & Campground, right next to Texas Tubes. Comal River Cottages and River Run Condos are right next to Texas Tubes as well. The historic Faust Hotel is located nearby. Most places in New Braunfels do not take reservations for just one night during the summer. ... See MoreSee Less

My birthday and my favorite color!

Award-winning Captain Mama books, written by an Air Force aviator and veteran, celebrate a military child's curiosity about his mother's work on the KC-135R refueling tanker... In both English and Spanish!

How can we surprise children next month with these books that also have great gender equity/leadership images inside?
