Every year while most of our SXSW and Rodeo Austin visitors are still packing their bags our signature park opens up to the Zilker Kite Festival. We always take the time to walk from our place (in the big building in the cluster on the left) to the park to take some pictures. People are everywhere. On the lawn flying kites, having picnics, taking pictures, petting their dogs, cuddling their babies. There are rock climbs and bouncy attractions. There are long lines to buy cup cakes or fill your water bottle. The trails and streets are crammed with people walking to the site, kites, coolers, dogs and kids in tow. And it's free. We made our trek again this year to take this picture with our still-changing skyline in the background.
