It is that time of year again. Motorcycles are everywhere in Austin for the Republic of Texas Biker Rally. My favorite event is the motorcycle parade that travels from the Rally site in North Austin to Congress Avenue Downtown. It is pretty special to cheer for the bikers as they arrive on Congress. This year I chose a spot in front of the Capitol Building to view the festivities.
I attended a fundraiser tonight which started off as a pedicab parade. Apparently one of the pedicab drivers was injured just before SXSW this year and was in need of some assistance. The music was supplied by the Minor Mishap Marching Band, but they all rode along on pedicabs while I marched along to keep up with them. It was a blast, and a good way to get in some walking again tonight.
The final day for this year’s HONK! TX festival provided a parade through the streets of East Austin, followed by performances at the Pan Am Park stage. The weather was perfect and it was an excellent ending to this great annual tradition in Austin. I hope you enjoy all the photos!
