Join us during 6:00-10:00 pm on Friday, June 17th at Malaquite Visitor Center to "Find Your Park" during dusk and dark! This fun, family event is free with park entrance fee and celebrates the National Park Service Centennial and all that the national seashore offers during twilight. This first-ever event features indoor movie screenings of "The National Parks of Texas: In Contact With Beauty", ranger-led beach walks, night sky talks, live creatures, and nocturnal animal displays.
Please be aware that the movie screenings and night sky talks have limited capacities. To attend the movie screenings and night sky talks, you must get a free ticket from the Ticket Booth at Malaquite Visitor Center Pavilion. The Ticket Booth will open at 6:00 pm on the night of the event, June 17th. All tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. You do not need a ticket to attend the ranger-led beach walks or to see the live nocturnal animals and displays. If you require special accommodations, please alert a park ranger during the event and they will be glad to assist you with your needs.
