The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department is now accepting applications for vendors at its City beaches until 5 p.m. on Friday, September 4, 2020.

In addition, vendors can also request other park locations throughout the city. Applications will be reviewed, and if necessary, a drawing will be held to determine vendor locations if multiple vendors select the same location.
