AISD Celebrates House Park Re-opening and 14th Annual Taco Shack Bowl

Anderson Trojans and the McCallum Knights battle for the win

House Park, which opened in 1939, can now continue to serve as the home field for Anderson, Austin, Lanier and McCallum high schools.
 
What: A ribbon cutting, followed by a coin flip with Superintendent Paul Cruz.
 
When: Thursday, Aug. 27 Ribbon cutting at 7 p.m.; game begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
Where: House Park Stadium, 1301 Shoal Creek Blvd.
 
The game winner will be awarded the "Taco Shack Bowl" trophy during a presentation on the field immediately following the game.
