Though a misty drizzle hung over the event, not even the weather could stop Farmer Fred’s Garden Spring Carnival.
Over 1000 San Marcos residents and their families gathered Thursday at the San Marcos City Park to play spring-themed games, snack on carnival food and hunt for thousands of hidden Easter eggs.
Jessica Ramos, city youth services manager, said the carnival has been going on for over nine years, becoming a tradition in the San Marcos community for local families and children.
Victoria Van de Ryt, recreation specialist, emphasized that volunteers are a huge part of this event. The event is put on by the community services department but includes Texas State students and volunteers.
