It has been a cold week in the Lake Travis area and we’re hoping for the weather to warm up and clear up for the weekend. That’s because it’s a lot more fun to make the trip to the big city and fly your kite at the 86th Annual Zilker Park Kite Festival when it’s sunny and warm. Chances for rain on Sunday are pretty good, so if Mother Nature refuses to cooperate (again!) a rain date is scheduled for March 8th.
There are a couple of rain or shine events to check out this weekend including our worth-the-trip Braunfest in New Braunfels. Or stay closer to home and get some exercise this Sunday at Run for a Purpose 5K and KidsK taking place through the rolling hills of Lakeway. Sign up to run or show up to cheer and help fight lung cancer.
We hope to see you (and the sun) out and about this weekend!
