Remember Field Day in elementary school? Whether you want to relive those glory days or win back some pride, Kyle Field Day offers the same set of parachute, relay and obstacle course themed competitions for adults. The festival includes field games, food trucks, live music, and a beer garden. It takes place March 31 and April 1 at Gregg-Clarke Park in Kyle.

“Kyle Field Day takes it back to the schoolyard for a high-energy weekend of throwback fun and friendly competition,” the City of Kyle website says. “Join us Friday evening for the Kyle Field Day Welcome Social and packet pick-up. During the social you’ll have a chance to mingle with your competition and try your hand in a few of the games that will be offered on Saturday.” On Saturday, teams of eight to ten will rack up points by competing in retro recess games like Dodgeball, Tug-o-War, Capture the Flag, Human Foosball, an Obstacle Course and more, the website says. All levels of athlete are welcome, and there are a variety of silly skill games to even the playing field. In between activities, teams can take a break in the beer garden, grab a bite to eat, browse vendor booths and recharge for the next round of play.

The event also benefits the Hays County Food Bank Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive. Participants are asked to bring one jar of either peanut butter or jelly to support the cause. The awards ceremony will be held Saturday evening, where the team with the most points will be awarded the grand prize trophy, some great sponsor swag, and a free team admission for the next go-around. Other prizes will be given for the team with the best costume and the team that brings in the most peanut butter and jelly for the Hays County Food Bank. “This event is a great team-builder for coworkers and church groups, a fun activity for neighbors and friends and a perfect way for college students to finish out the school year,” the website says. “Participants must be 21+ and teams must be co-ed. Have the heart of a champion but not a team of eight?  Sign up as an individual or small group and we’ll place you on a team!”
