Last evening thousands of Austines turned out for Batfest, celebrating the colony of Mexican free-tailed bats that live under the Congress Avenue Bridge. Even though Adam West did not attend this year’s event, there was still plenty of live music, unhealthy food, bat paraphernalia, and bat watching stretched across the bridge.
Bill and I can now confirm with certainty that…
…more people come to Batfest when temperatures are under 100 degrees.
…there may be different models of Batmobiles but all are black.
…bat rings can peacefully coexist with other animals.
…the bat tatoos were of the temporary wash-off type.
…cool bat-inspired costumes don’t have to involve capes.
