One of the best sights along the Seawall in Galveston is the Pleasure Pier. If you have been, and are missing the view, you can check out the surfcam. It will remind you how nice it is to have the opportunity to visit in person.
Here are a series of photos taken at Wurstfest in New Braunfels. It keeps getting more and more popular every year. 🙂
This is a little more than a souvenir shop on the Seawall, although you can find lots of fun stuff here to take home as a reminder of your trip to Galveston. Murdochs has an awesome deck where you can enjoy a drink and the Gulf breeze while sitting in one of their rocking chairs. It is also a great photo spot for the Ferris Wheel on the Pleasure Pier.
The Pflugerville Deutschen Pfest made for a fun afternoon. Of course my favorite activity was the petting zoo with the little pigs, rabbits, goats, and chickens who just wanted to have a relaxing Sunday. The bands were good. My favorite was a band called The Eggmen, which is a Beatles tribute band. Otherwise, it was a big happy fair with rides, booths, food and drinks.
What a beautiful evening for The Mighty Thomas Carnival to set up shop in the Dell Diamond parking lot! 🙂
The SXSW Interactive Festival never ceases to amaze me. Have an empty parking lot downtown? OK, we will install a Ferris Wheel for fun. Or maybe an upside down church building. Presidential traffic jams got you down? Try to out grumpy old Grumpy Cat who is coming to town. We also have R2-D2 and parties galore to boost your spirits. This Festival is awesome, and it’s only the first day so far.
A new addition to the Trail Of Lights this year is the Ferris Wheel. It provides a nice view of the lights and the city.
There is a carnival going on in the parking lot of the Dell Diamond called Diamond Fest . They have it all, including rides, food, games, a puppet show, a motorcycle show, a petting zoo, pig races, and a Prince cover band. My favorite ride this evening was the Ferris Wheel and the awesome sunset views from the top. 🙂
