The original social-distanced
The Panther Island Pavilion beach venue daily activities continue with additional live music on Saturdays. A modified format will be in place to allow for implementation of additional social distancing and health and safety protocols. Enjoy a relaxing day of floating the Trinity River with a cold brew. Rent a kayak, paddleboard, pedal boat or bring your own! Landlubbers are welcome on the beach too. From a tube or from the shore, spread out and enjoy open space, fresh air and live music on the Coors Light waterfront stage in the coolest seat in town.
Limited capacity, keep groups to 10 or less with proper social distancing, contactless payment options, temperature checks for all guests upon entry and other health protocols on site.
