Get the Shell Experience at Deer Park’s 125th Anniversary Celebration!
Sep 29, 2017
In honor of Deer Park's 125th anniversary, all are invited to a free concert and community event on Saturday, November 4th from 4-9PM, featuring headliner RaeLynn, Shell’s 7 Mile Perimeter band, food trucks, history and more!
Shell has partnered with the 125th Anniversary Committee - which includes participation from the City of Deer Park, the Deer Park Independent School District and the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce – to hold this fun, family-friendly event in the Abshier Stadium Parking lot.
"We've spent the entire year building up to this event, and we're looking forward to bringing all of Deer Park together for this family-friendly concert experience," Mayor Jerry Mouton said. "It is an honor to announce that RaeLynn, whose hits include 'Lonely Call' and 'Love Triangle,' will be the headliner of our event, with lots more features to enjoy.”
Shell Deer Park’s 7 Mile Perimeter band will be the opening act for the evening, starting on stage at 5 pm. The band’s membership represents employees throughout the Shell Deer Park site, from operations to security to human resources. Watch a behind the music feature of 7 Mile Perimeter here.
According to Barry Klein, General Manager of Shell Deer Park, attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in the “Shell Experience,” which will showcase the past, present and future of the site – complete with a museum of our history with the community, a 360-degree virtual reality tour of Shell Deer Park, bouncy castles for kids and much more. This is a great opportunity for friends and families of the site to experience a show-and-tell of the Deer Park site’s rich history in partnership with the community of Deer Park.
“We are proud to be part of the ongoing legacy of the birthplace of Texas and so excited to be the presenting sponsor for the 125th Celebration,” Klein said. “We look forward to seeing our employees, their families and the entire Deer Park community participate in an event that celebrates our history and legacy, all leading up to performances by Shell’s own 7 Mile Perimeter band and country music superstar RaeLynn.”
Make sure to bring your appetite and some spending money - food trucks from around Houston including Predator and Prey, Foreign Policy, Maine-ly Sandwiches, Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack, Wylie Street Tacos and Space City Spudz will offer a variety of delicious treats!
Parking arrangements will be made available as the event approaches. Bring your lawn chairs!
