Cinco De Mayo Party Weekend
With Cinco De Mayo coming up next weekend, you can expect to see almost everyone with a beer, margarita, or a beerita in their hand. But if you’re looking to take a break from the “all day drinkfest” then be sure and check out these awesome events happening!
The 34th Annual Pecan Street Festival will be taking over the streets of downtown on Saturday and Sunday. The FREE festival features artisans and musicians from all over the U.S. and introduces observers to cultures from around the globe. Festival goers can find paintings, woodwork, candles, jewelry, clothing, home décor other useful and whimsical household items. This year the festival will also be helping promote a “green” and healthy Austin lifestyle by recycling programs as well as having a “calorie counting” challenge.
Now if you would rather keep up with the Cinco De Mayo tradition of drinking, then grab a beer and listen to some good ‘ole country music at the UT LBJ Library Lawn. The Lonestar Jam will start at noon on Saturday and will feature performances by Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbot Band, Stoney Larue, Brandon Rhyder and many others. Tickets are on sale now for only $35 and can be purchased here.
So why not start off your morning with a true Cinco De Mayo breakfast, walk around downtown to enjoy all that the Pecan Festival has to offer, then end your day with some Texas Country? Sounds like a pretty good Saturday to me!
