IN OUR COMMUNITY
The city of Deer Park is just days away from the 125th Celebration Concert! In honor of Deer Park's 125th anniversary, all residents are invited to a free concert and community event on Saturday, November 4th from 4-9PM, featuring headliner RaeLynn, Shell’s 7 Mile Perimeter band, food trucks, history and more!
Partnering with Shell, the 125th Anniversary Committee - which includes participation from the City of Deer Park, the Deer Park Independent School District and the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce – will hold this fun, family-friendly event in the Abshier Stadium Parking lot. Please see parking details below.
"We've spent the entire year building up to this event, and we're looking forward to bringing all of Deer Park together for this family-friendly concert experience," Mayor Jerry Mouton said. "It is an honor to announce that RaeLynn, whose hits include 'Lonely Call' and 'Love Triangle,' will be the headliner of our event, with lots more features to enjoy.”
According to Barry Klein, General Manager of Shell Deer Park, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in the “Shell Experience,” which will include a pop-up museum of the entity’s 88-year history in Deer Park, showcasing the past, present and future of the site. The space will also include a 360-degree virtual reality tour of the Shell Deer Park, bouncy castles for kids and much more.
“We are proud to be part of the ongoing legacy of the birthplace of Texas and so excited to be the presenting sponsor for the 125th Celebration,” Klein said. “We look forward to seeing our employees, their families and the entire Deer Park community participate in an event that celebrates our history and legacy, all leading up to performances by Shell’s own 7 Mile Perimeter band and country music superstar RaeLynn.”
Make sure to bring your appetite and some spending money - food trucks from around Houston including Predator and Prey, Foreign Policy, Maine-ly Sandwiches, Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack, Wylie Street Tacos and Space City Spudz will offer a variety of delicious treats!
Attendees are also reminded to bring lawn chairs.
