Virtual Fishing Derby: The second annual fishing derby will take place starting today (June 4) through Sunday (June 6).

Aloha Pool Party: Step into your favorite luau clothes this Saturday (June 5) at the Swim Center from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. to join in some games, dancing and more!

Beginner Paddle Board Class: This fun class will teach the basics of stand up paddle boarding and will take place at the Swim Center from June 5 through July 10 from 11 a.m. to noon. Walk-ins welcome, but the class is limited to no more than eight individuals. Cost is $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents.

Aqua Strengthen and Stretch: This class will use the resistance of water, along with drag resistant pool props to help condition muscles for strength, followed with stretching and relaxation. Classes will take place Wednesday evenings at the Swim Center from now through June 30. Call (512) 261-3000 for more information.

4th of July Events: Fireworks, a parade and another "Mermaid Day" are all planned for the 4th of July weekend. The theme this year is "America the Beautiful - A Symbol of Freedom."

See below for information on volunteers still needed for the event.
Lake Travis Film Festival
The Lake Travis Film Festival will kick off next week! The festival will run from Thursday, June 10 until Sunday, June 13 at various locations throughout the Lake Travis area. The festival kick-off will take place Thursday at the La Quinta Hotel here in Lakeway.

Along with an extremely diverse collection of over 90 short films, documentaries and features, this year's festival highlights a number of women-centric films such as Rise Above: WASP (pictured left) by Director Kara White. This is a short-form documentary about a special World War II unit made up entirely of women.

Short films are a natural fit for the "pop-up" style of the Lake Travis Film Festival. This year, the festival will showcase over 16 hours of short, live-action narrative. It will also include short documentary films featuring a wide assortment of genres, styles and topics. The festival also includes a young filmmaker showcase, a music video showcase, bowling and afterparties throughout the Lake Travis community.

Badges for the four-day festival are now available to purchase at laketravisfilmfestival.com. Daily wristband options are also available. You can also click here for all the information, including a complete list of the films.
