The first weekend of August is here and we’re coming along with it to showcase some events happening around town! While a new month means a fresh start for some people, it also calls for a night out for others. For this edition of This Weekend on the Town, we have shopping and music around the area. Be safe and enjoy the weekend!

Join your friends at First Friday in Downtown New Braunfels from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a night full of shopping and eating. Local businesses will stay open later for customers to peruse.
