Landa Park had another large Easter opening in 1941. The season’s first dance in the Landa Park Open-Air Pavilion was held the night of Easter Sunday from 8:30 to 12:30 with music by Al Schnabel and his orchestra. The Kindermaskenball (Children’s Masquerade) was another eagerly attended, happy success in May. July 4 landed on Friday giving a three-day weekend and even more participation.
On June 26, 1935, while dealing with the Great Depression, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt by Executive Order created the National Youth Administration (NYA) as an agency to enable boys and girls to continue their education in the school or college of their choice through part-time NYA jobs. The NYA also provided work for young people who were out of school and unemployed. Mayor Walter Sippel of New Braunfels was chairman of the local NYA Advisory Committee. The NYA observed its sixth anniversary on Thursday, June 26, 1941. Residents of New Braunfels and the vicinity were invited to visit the NYA project operating in Landa Park.
