Wow! A welcome bit of rain and cooler temps rolled into the Lake Travis area this week. Could this be the start of the highly-anticipated El Niño? Maybe we’ll finally see that little piece of Sometimes Island disappear this fall.
There is a lot going on this weekend, so let’s jump right in! Not to miss this weekend are two Lake Travis Lifestyle featured events. Taking place on Saturday is the 24th Annual Destruction Derby in Spicewood. On Sunday, you can join forces with hundreds of other volunteers at the Lake Travis Underwater & Shoreline Cleanup.
These lower temps make it a bit more manageable to be outside … running? Take a road trip to Gruene and run (or walk) through the Gruene Historic District at the Gruene 10K on Saturday. Or participate in Central Texas’ Race against Brain Cancer at the Brain Power 5k on Sunday.
Fall is right around the corner and that means garage sales! You can spend time Saturday morning at the Lakeway Indoor City Wide Garage Sale or driving the streets of Steiner Ranch looking for deals at the Steiner Ranch Community Garage Sale.
There’s a lot more going on so you’re going to have to scroll down the page to check it all out. As always, thank you for supporting our local businesses, events and live music scene — Live Local!
