Calling all bears! You’re invited to join the Houston Bears at their annual Bear Tubing event taking place from September 21st through 24th!
Bear Tubing is a 3-day event hosted by the Houston Bears in New Braunfels, Texas focused on relaxing and hanging out with friends from all over the bear world. Come & hang at the pool parties while eating, drinking and enjoying good music with other bears and their admirers and then go tubing down the Comal River. It’s like your favorite lazy river attraction only in nature surrounded by gorgeous hairy hunks in nothing but their swim shorts!
Weekend and daily passes are available. For those staying for the entire event, rooms are available at the host property, Gruene Outpost River Lodge at a discounted rate. Your full weekend run pass includes all events, pool parties, food, drinks, cocktails, the tubing event, the Saturday night Mr. Bear Tubing Contest hosted by Diamond Yaki, and a special performance by the one and only Tom Goss.
