Pecan Street Festival: Spring 2017

The spring version of the Pecan Street Festival took over Sixth Street (also known as Pecan Street) last weekend. In honor of its 40th anniversary, this outdoor arts and music festival has been designated as a “Heritage Event” by the City of Austin.

This free festival is held twice a year: the first weekend in May and the last weekend in September. Although many of the same vendors participate each time, I still enjoy browsing the booths for new merchandise and artwork. At this “Spring Festival”, I saw lots of options for dealing with our upcoming—and inevitably hot—Texas summer…

Cheap shades.

Fashionable hydration.

Lone Star straw hats.

Crazy sweatbands.

Colorful sundresses.

Tie-dye clothes (just Keepin’ Austin Weird).

Glow-in-the-dark jellyfish paperweights.
(Not related to summer, but very cool.)
