Pokémon fever continues as the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department will host another Pokémon Catch ‘Em all event at two City parks this weekend.
The first will be from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, August 26, at Pueblo Viejo Park located at 9300 Roseway St.
The second will be from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, August 27, at Veterans Park located at 5301 Salem St.
Each event will offer prizes and giveaways, including Pokémon team hats. There will also be music, games, and charging stations provided by El Paso Electric.
The player who has the best picture with Pokémon in a participating park posted to the Parks and Recreation’s Facebook page with the hashtag #ParkemonEP will win a special award.
The two events are a follow-up to a packed crowd who attended the first Pokémon event at Eastwood Park last weekend. More Pokémon Catch ‘Em All events are planned and a schedule is posted on the Parks and Recreation website at www.elpasotexas.gov/parks.
