Tie-Dye and Octoberfest Party
Oct 13 @ 5:00 pm – 10:30 pm

HCN has not had a tie-dye party in a long time. So we figured it is time!

You will have to provide your own t shirt, but HCN will provide the dye and the know how.


This will also be our Octoberfest event, so if you want tie-dye lederhosen, then that is up to you.

But think about bringing a German style dish for this event.


More info to come in your email!


The Escape Game!
Jan 26 @ 5:30 pm – 10:45 pm

Have you played one of those Escape Room games?

Have you heard of the Escape Room games?


They are a lot of fun! Imagine you are together “locked” in a room with a handful of other people and you have to try and solve puzzles and clues in order to escape and you only have 1 hour to do so!


This is the home version of the game! A group of people will have one hour to solve their puzzle in order to escape. There are many different games and levels of difficulty from easier to hard! Each game lasts an hour so while one group is solving puzzles, everyone else is chatting and eating.

RSVP’s will be limited to 25 or so people.


Look for more info in your email soon!

George Washington did it, and so did Ben Franklin. Join a bunch of regular people just like you who want to have fun in the sun and water, au naturel.

In celebration of Nude Recreation Week, (July 7–14, 2019) the Hill Country Nudists,
associated with the American Association of Nude Recration (, encourage the public to experience the stress-relieving freedom of nude recreation. Join the club and many other body-positive people on the afternoon of July 6, 2019 at Hippie Hollow Park, the only official public nude recreation area in Texas.

Your shape, size, color, experience, age and any other attributes will fade away in the sun and splash of nude freedom. Normal, everyday people with normal, everyday bodies will relax and enjoy themselves without the stresses of work life. You don’t need to stress about your body, but instead accept yourself and show up to have a great time without judgment or perfection anywhere in sight.

Hippie Hollow does have a fee per car of $15. So consider car pooling.
