Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of the Lake Travis Lifestyle weekend roundup. The pic for this weekend is at Mansfield Dam. Even with three floodgates open all week, the water level on Lake Travis continued to rise. It’s finally starting to go down after peaking at 692.68 feet on June 8, 2016. Lake Travis is reopening to recreational boating at noon today. (photo credit Todd Hower)
We’ve searched out the best events in and around the Lake Travis area so you don’t have to.
Check out the roundup of local events around the lake featuring the start of the Lakeway Summer Movie Series with a dive-in movie at the Lakeway Swim Center. Get a start to your Saturday morning with Games2U at the Lake Travis Community Library.
You’re going to see a lot of motorcycles driving out to the lake because it’s the Republic of Texas Biker Rally. Enjoy the full lake weekend or get out of town for the 2nd Annual Texas Fried Chicken Throwdown presented by Jack Allen’s Kitchen.
