Local News

Texas Lions Camp is a 500-acre camp in the Texas Hill Country, that provides camping experience for children with physical disabilities, type 1 diabetes and cancer at no cost. 

The Texas Lions Club wants to make sure that’s possible, with the Ride on the Wildside event in Kingsville.

 “This is our 15th year hosting this event on King Ranch, so it is a long-standing event,” said Janine Reyes, Tourism Services Director for the City of Kingsville. 

The event offers 10, 32, 62 mile rides on the historic King Ranch property which helps cover the cost of camp. 

“We cover all skill sets, it’s just a very unique opportunity,” Reyes said, adding that this year may be the largest attendance the club has ever had. 

“It’s really a huge gem in our area, the largest in the state and to have an opportunity to see that first hand is just really amazing,” she said referring to King Ranch. 

A Ride on the Wildside will take place April 27 at 8 AM in Kingsville.

After the ride there will be other events in the area, including a Farmers Market and Festival de la Loteria.

April 28, the 34th Annual St. Gertrude Parish and School Spring Festival will take place.
