Fall frivolity, free as you want it to be

cucurb.jpgTwo of the freebies will tempt those there to spend a bit in a good cause. South Austin’s photogenic pumpkin patch one block east of Congress at 205 East Monroe, does sell those pumpkins, today and other Saturdays from 10 am to 8 pm, Sundays from noon to 8 pm, and weekdays for as long as they last from 2 pm to 8 pm. Your bucks benefit Grace UMC and, through Pumpkins USA, the Navajo Nation agricultural enterprises in the Four Corners region. Starting at 8 am today, St. Iggie of The South Austin H-E-B (St. Ignatius, Martyr, 126 West Oltorf) will serve up food, music from local groups such as Los Texas Wranglers, games, pony rides, and much, much more at its free fund-raising jamaica, just past the Tips house branch of Wells Fargo, off South Congress at Oltorf. Anything spent at this fall festival goes to programs and activities of the church and its associated school. Bring your camera along to the Austin Art Car parade that starts today at 11:30 am and wheels along from 300 Congress downtown, all the way to the Congress Avenue Baptist Church (1611 South Congress, at East Monroe), just a block away from that pumpkin patch we mentioned earlier. This is the fourth year. If the past is any guide, there’ll be two- and three-wheelers of several kinds, not just cars and pickups. The “Car-nival” afterward will be located behind the church. Events will run until 4 pm. I love a triple-play of events within walking distance of one another.
