Flyer for Riverside Smoke Off

Riverside Smoke Off

Riverside Park 

September 11th and 12th 


There are three things we all know that come with the month of September:  End of Summer, County Fairs, Back to School and BBQ Cook Offs.  And while we can’t bring Summer back, we can help with the BBQ Cook Off and a taste of the great outdoors with camping Riverside Park. 

Show your support for the re-opening of Riverside Park by participating in the Riverside Smoke Off, Friday and Saturday, September 11th and 12th.  

Cookers can enter into 6 categories:  brisket, chicken, ribs, beans, Dutch oven sweet and best decorated site.  Awards will be given for 1st and 2nd place in all categories except best decorated.   

Thanks to a generous donation from Lone Star GC3, cash prizes will be given to 1st place brisket ($1,000); chicken and ribs ($500 each); Beans and Dutch Oven Sweet - Jackpot.  All 1st and 2nd place winners will receive trophies.  

Entry fees are: Brisket - $150 (price includes camp site, 1 RV/Camper and 2 cars); Chicken, Beans, Ribs, and Sweet Dutch Oven are $25 each category.  You can enter the Best Decorated Site at no charge.  The theme is Patriotism.

Zombie 2 K-ish Wilderness Run Flyer

Zombie 2Kish Wilderness Run

Friends, Bay Citians, Texans come help us stop the Zombie Horde from invading Riverside Park AGAIN!  

Zombies are wanted to run (on and off road) this wilderness course that starts off on the pipeline, continues the Wilderness Trail, then down the road onto the jogging trail and finishes at the Riverside Ranger Station.  Be careful – there are obstacles along the way.  At the end of the run we will host a Riverside Liberation party with light refreshments.

Event registration is now open.  Run fees are: $25 per runner (through September 27th).  Late registration and day of fees are $35 (beginning September 28th).   If you want the swag and don’t want to sweat – it is an additional $10, and we won’t tell a soul you didn’t run.   Extra swag will cost $15 per shirt, $10 per bag (limited edition Riverside Park bag) and $5 per bandana.   Swag includes t-shirt, bag, bandana, medal, race bib and photo.  

Trophies will be awarded at the Riverside Liberation Party for: fastest male and female, slowest overall and best Zombie outfit.
