Easter Tradition Continues at Labonte Park

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Camping spots were full at Labonte Park this Easter.

Every year dozens of families and friends gather at the popular park to play, hunt for eggs and bar-b-que.

The city rents out spots along the river.

Bounce houses, fishing and socializing are some of the big reasons so many people show up.

"We've been here years back when our children were smaller," said Barbara Bueno."It's been like 12-15 years last time we came."

Last year, the city started charging to camp at the site.
 
The money raised goes to clean up and maintenance.
