Plenty of food trucks will also be on site along Congress Ave between 8th and 9th St! There will also be plenty of story time opportunities with your favorite authors as well as a Children’s Activity Tent with plenty of make and take crafts to keep kiddos busy! Personally, its a “must do” event for this time of year. So fun!!

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center hosts an exclusive event called “Fortlandia“. This year there are 9 “forts” spread out across a 2 mile trail at the wildflower center. All of these forts are meant to be enjoyed by children and “children at heart” of all ages. The path is not always paved so if you are bringing your stroller, a jogging stroller is recommended because there are some places where there is uneven terrain. Members are free as well as children under 4. Adults are $15. See prices here!.
