Purple Martin Parties
2018 Dates: July 20-21, July 27-28, August 3-4
Location: Behind Applebee’s and near the Sam’s Club parking lot at La Frontera Village in Round Rock
Friday and Saturday nights, 7:45 – 8:45 pm, FREE
Watch an acrobatic hurricane of birds as hundreds of thousands of Purple Martins “swirl” in the skies in and around the roosting site each evening. It’s better than the bats! Binoculars are optional. Lawn chairs, picnic blankets, cameras, and hats are highly recommended! This is a free event. Please consider making a donation to support our programming!
Please park in the Sam’s parking lot or the bank parking lot behind the Applebee’s. We encourage you to eat and shop at the surrounding businesses before the party starts!
