Austin, a Pictorial (the Zilker Park Kite Festival Edition!)

I had never been to the Zilker Park Kite Festival even though it's been an annual tradition here in Austin since 1929. I went yesterday, and it is now my favorite thing in town. Screw the ACL Festival and SXSW (which is going on right now too). Who gives a crap about Austin's movie and theatre scene. Why should I care that the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo is, at this moment, in full swing? I want to fly a kite, and by George, I did.

I encourage you to click on the pictures below for a close up.

I'd climb some trees the day after that to get myself a kite. That looks like a great event.

I have never heard of that event. Very neat. It looks like soo much fun, especially with the mild weather we've been having lately.

I was disappointed to miss it so I'm happy to see the photos. Looks like it was as good as always. and you didn't even bitch about the headache I thought it was sure to be getting there.

By George!

This makes me sad to not be in Austin right now. I think this may inspire me to start haggling for my transfer.
