Let’s kick-off this weekend with a little humor from our pals over at Angel’s Icehouse. This is what makes life in the Lake Travis area great. Just because we have some of the most spectacular views in Texas doesn’t mean we have to be uppity about it.
There’s a chance of rain in the forecast for Saturday, but overall it looks likes a comfortable weekend ahead. Let’s send some “please don’t rain vibes” to Mother Nature because SpringFest is happening on Saturday at Hill Country Galleria. The biggest time in the smallest town. Well, small-ish.
Before we exhaust you with all of your awesome event options, let’s take a look back at what went on this past week …
On Wednesday, Cathy shared our annual Best Patios in the Lake Travis Area article. This year, we tried to include a few unexpected spots like the Apis/Sorellina campus and Oasis Texas Brewing Company. This is the perfect weather for exploring patios, so get out there and see for yourself.
In preparation for this weekend’s Spring Shows for the Vandegrift Legacies and the Lake Travis Cavalettes, we honored these talented young ladies and drill team alumni who are cultivating a love of dance in the community.
Today, we have a special offer to share!
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, local photographer Richard Parker is hosting a Mama & Me photo session special. For $150, mom can pose with her cute kiddos for a mini photo shoot on May 13th, 2017, noon–6pm at My Time Kids Academy in Bee Cave. The entire session fee will be donated to CC4C.org. Book it pronto — only 24 spots available!
There are so many fun events happening, you’ll have plenty to do. Have a great weekend, Lake Travis friends!
