“Come and enjoy yourself, but behave yourself.”

The San Antonio Express-News reports that with replenished rivers and fair weather in the forecast, local police and authorities are gearing up for an influx of Fourth of July revelers this weekend taking advantage of optimal tubing conditions on the Comal and Guadalupe rivers.

The newspaper reported New Braunfels Police Department Communications Coordinator David Ferguson saying that although the holiday falls on Monday, “Fourth of July Saturday” is one of three summer days when huge crowds are expected on the area waterways.

He said the department will operate under “all hands on deck,” meaning all officers will be on duty “in some way, shape or form” this weekend.

Ferguson also said the department may regulate the influx of people on the Guadalupe River by “staggering” visitors in a “queuing system” at certain areas to provide relief at the last exit where tuber traffic has a history of becoming bottlenecked.

Rio Raft Resort & RV Park posted on their Facebook page that the Corp of Engineers will lower the flow from the lake to 400 cfs on Friday, July 1 thru the holiday weekend. This level is great for tubing, kayaking and rafting.

The National Weather Service forecasts the temperature to reach the mid-90s this weekend, with lows in the mid-70s and partly cloudy skies. Sunday morning will be partly cloudy in the morning then “mostly sunny.”
