The following information should be helpful for anyone attending the festival or trying to avoid it all together!

What I Love About Austin ~ Water


Water is one of the great benefits of Austin and the surrounding counties.  The Colorado River runs through the heart of Austin.  In the area, we also have the Pedernales River, the Comal River, the Guadalupe River, the San Marcos River and many creeks, lakes, campgrounds, and water features to enjoy.  So, if you are a water person, Austin is your town.
