**UPDATE**

schertzqwebreascheduleDue to recent rains in the area and forecasted storms for this weekend, the City of Schertz has rescheduled the SchertzQ: Schertz Turns 60 event and cancelled the BBQ competition scheduled for this Friday and Saturday at Pickrell Park. The City is looking to reschedule most of the event elements for Sunday, October 7 from 12:00PM – 9:00 PM on Main Street. Additionally, weather permitting, the fireworks show is planned for October 7. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of all attendees and staff is our number one priority. Stay tuned to Facebook and Schertz.com for updates.
