It is good to know that some parts of Austin haven’t changed as the city continues to grow. Tonight was the Full Moon Swim at Barton Springs Pool. It is difficult to find this party on any official calendar, but it happens at every full moon. The entrance to the pool is free after 9:00 pm, so everyone jumps into the cold water and howls at the moon. Pretty cool party, huh?
Wow, that was a lot of fun! The hillside was probably as packed as I have ever seen it, and everyone was there to see Ballet Folklórico de Texas.
On this sunny Saturday, I took a walk through Zilker Botanical Garden. There were flowers, trees, bamboo, fish, dinosaurs, waterfalls, and other things wanting to be photographed.
The Summer Musical at the Zilker Hillside Theater this year is Hairspray. As usual, they do an awesome job. In this one, they sing, dance, fall in love, protest, and end up in jail among other things. Check it out if you find yourself in Austin.
If you are in Austin, you might want to check this out. Metamorphosis Dance Team presents its Ballet Under the Stars show called “… so they dance”. It happens again Saturday night at 8:00 pm at the Zilker Hillside Theater. It is a very pleasant show and it provides you the opportunity to take a picnic and throw out a blanket on the Hill.
