Hey, happy weekend Lake Travis!
This weekends featured event is one that you’ll have to get up early to catch — consider it good practice for the kids that will be heading back to school in just a couple of weeks. Tempt them with some donuts and make your way to Mansfield Dam Park before the sun comes up to watch the 25th Annual Lake Travis Flight.
It’s also Tax-Free Weekend (August 7-9) and a good time to knock out some back-to-school shopping. The Hill Country Galleria is hosting a back-to-school shopping event this Friday and Saturday. You can have fun shopping tax-free and get a $20 gift card when you spend $100 on back-to-school items.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! It’s the 9th Scoop Austin Ice Cream Festival this Saturday with live music, games, contests and plenty of free ice cream. Don’t miss the ice cream eating contest to see who’s taking home the spoon this year.
Here is your Lake Travis area weekend roundup filled with places to go and people to see. As always, thank you for supporting our local businesses, events and live music scene — Live Local!
