Starting on July 2nd and ending on the 4th, you’ll find the Llano Rock’n Riverfest and Jet Ski Races! This event is held annually on the Llano riverbanks, and it’s a blast! Kick off a family day of kid-fishing, vendors, inflatables, jeep crawling, and so much more. There will also be food, drinks, and a firework show at the end of the day!

If you’re feeling it, The 17th Annual Marble Falls Rodeo Triathlon will be taking place on July 16th! It’ll be a beautiful (yet challenging) course through the scenic Hill Country areas. Start out in the freshwater of Lake Marble Falls, then cruise through the scenic hill country, and end the triathlon with a run through the lakeside of neighborhood of Marble Falls.
