Memorial Day is this weekend and what better way to celebrate than with and overnight camp out under the stars at McKelligon Canyon!

The City of El Paso Parks and Recreations Department invites El Pasoans to take part in an overnight camp out at McKelligon Canyon where families can learn how to properly set up a campsite along with a fun filled evening of storytelling, star gazing, hiking, archery, outdoor cooking tips and no camp out would complete without marshmallow roasting.

This family friendly event will take place at McKelligon Canyon and begins at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 26th through Saturday, May 27, 2017
