Temperatures are cooling down a bit this weekend, but hey — we’re not complaining. It’ll be triple digits soon enough. There’s plenty to do in and around the Lake Travis area, so a few clouds shouldn’t interfere with your plans.
Before we dive into the weekend, let’s take a look back at what happened this week …
On Wednesday, Sandra gave us the real estate scoop with helpful insight about home mortgages and lending. If you’re buying a home in the Lake Travis area, you’re in good hands.
Mark your calendars for the 10th annual SpringFest celebration that will be held on Saturday, April 29 at Hill Country Galleria. Cathy shared an insider’s guide for festival-goers, so you can make the most of the afternoon. Plus, find out what’s new to SpringFest this year!
Signs are popping up around the area in preparation for General Election and Special Election voting on May 6th. Wondering what’s what? Next week, we’ll cover some of the hot topics you’ll see on the ballots in Austin, Bee Cave, and Lakeway.
