What: Riding the River & Live Tunes at Gruene Hall
Beat the heat with the cool water of the Guadalupe River. Whether you choose an inner toob, a raft or a SUP (stand up paddle board), jump in the water and enjoy a leisurely float along one of Central Texas’ most beautiful waterways. Contact outfitters Rockin ‘R’ River Rides or Gruene River Company for information. Dry off and head on over to Gruene Hall! Gruene Hall features live music everyday year ‘round. Shows are free most Monday through Thursday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Friday and Saturday evenings are generally ticketed or cover shows.

What: Two Ton Tuesdays and Swing Dance Lessons
It wouldn’t be summertime without popular rock-a-billy band Two Tons of Steel holding court in Gruene Hall every Tuesday evening. If you haven’t caught Two Ton fever yet, grab your dancing shoes and get ready. The band takes the stage at 8:30pm. Come early for Swing Dance Lessons from 6pm to 7pm. Learn simple, fun East Coast Swing steps in this one-hour class held before each Two Ton Tuesday show all summer long at Gruene Hall. This class is perfect for beginners or those wanting to polish their wraps, tunnels, turns and spins! The one-hour lesson begins at 6pm and is just $8 per person. You don’t even need a partner to join in on the fun! Hang around Gruene for dinner and try out your moves with popular rock-a-billy group Two Tons of Steel that evening.
