City of Victoria Parks & Recreation to host free drive-in car bingo

Flyer for drive-in bingo. Feb. 26, 7 p.m., Riverside Stadium. Register at 3614853200

Residents will have to bring their A-game—or, rather, their B-I-N-G-O game—for a chance to win fun prizes at the City of Victoria Parks & Recreation’s first-ever drive-in bingo Feb. 26 at the Riverside Stadium parking lot.

Games start at 7 p.m. The event is free, but registration will be limited to 50 vehicles to allow for adequate spacing and social distancing. Residents can pre-register for the event by visiting or calling 361-485-3200. Registration will be open until 6 p.m. the day of the event or until space is filled.

“In the past we haven’t done as many events in January and February, so we wanted to try something new,” said recreation coordinator Gabby Anglin. “Through a professional group, I learned about another city that was doing drive-in bingo, so I reached out to find out how we could host a similar event in Victoria.”

Residents will tune their radios to 91.1 to receive instructions and hear the letters and numbers that are called. Residents who win each round must honk their car horns, and Parks & Recreation staff will come to their vehicles to verify the win and deliver prizes. The event will feature nine rounds of regular bingo and one round of blackout bingo. 

Residents will be required to stay in their vehicles during the event. Residents may remain unmasked in their vehicles except when receiving a prize from Parks & Recreation staff. Staff will be masked during the event, and prizes will be wiped down and sanitized before they are presented to residents.

Winners will receive gift baskets filled with gift cards and a variety of prizes including socks, lotion and household cleaning items. The prizes for the event were donated by Excel Complete Home Health Care, Crown Hospice, Tag Management Services and Kindred at Home.
