Honk!TX: honk if you love it

Music and spectacle, all free; what more could anyone want on a beautiful spring day! Honk!TX community bands paraded from east to west this year, instead of from west to east as was done last year–beginning at Pan Am park instead of disbanding there.

We kept to the east side of IH-35 again this year, where the streets are shadier and quieter and more peaceful, and we’re not sorry that we did. Two art bicycles turned out again. Music was accompanied by stilt walkers, twirlers of hula hoops, and figures on sticks (see picture).

Here’s a list of the bands participating; Austin’s own Minor Mishap Marching Band took the lead.

Here are some still images, and YouTube is a good place to search for unedited and edited videos. Anyone who missed this weekend festival lost out on a happy Austin time.
