Salado's Volunteer Fire Department provides so much for this community and we want to help them as much as possible. All proceeds from our Oktoberfest Volksride go to our local firefighters.
The Sirena Festival and Mermaid Parade was founded in 2016 with a mission to share the story of Salado's beloved mermaid, Sirena and to create an all-abilities playground in Central Texas. We are a proud host of this annual event.
