Holiday Tradition

You have to love a city that has a festival for everything imaginable.

Austin is truly mad about FESTIVALS. On Sunday, there were at least five major festivals happening at once. As I review the calendar for upcoming events, I felt the need to share some of the more unusual (non-music) events: East Austin Studio Tour, O. Henry’s Pun-Off, Turkey Trot (highly recommended as a Thanksgiving Tradition), Zilker Kite Festival, Trail of Lights, Free Day of Yoga, West Cave Star Party, Bat Fest, Zilker Garden Festival and Eeyore”s Birthday Party.

This is just a minute sampler of the tremendous number to choose from this year. There’s literally a festival for every yen here in Austin. The weather is fabulous now. Don’t miss out!
