Get ready. Get set. Go to Marble Falls Spring Break 2018.

The Marble Falls Parks and Recreation Department again will provide the free weekday fun while Marble Falls Independent School District students are on vacation.

It takes place every day from Monday, March 12, through Friday, March 16. all with the help of local sponsors.

Last year, H-E-B became the corporate sponsor through its Community Investment Program. Free lunches are provided for kids every day from restaurants including Chick-fil-A, Subway, Pizza Hut and, of course, H-E-B.

Monique Breaux, this year's coordinator, amassed some statistics from last year's foodies: 300 hot dogs and 200 hamburgers, 520 bags of fruit snacks, 584 bags of chips, 310 bottles of sports drinks and 300 bottles of water.

The event has only grown in popularity over the years.

Spring is in the air and coming with it March 13-18 Marble Falls Parks & Recreation Spring Break Program.

Last year, attendance almost doubled and this year one donor more than doubled support in response.

“We received a $2,500 grant from the H-E-B Community Investment Program,” said City Manager Mike Hodge. “Typically the city's budget for spring break is about $2,400.”

Most of the city's largest retailers, some smaller ones and restaurants always contribute in some way but this year H-E-B is the primary sponsor.

“The local H-E-B has always been a Spring Break supporter with volunteers and donations,” said Parks & Recreation Director Robert Moss. “HEB continues to help our community become a better place to live; both at the local and corporate levels.”
