You are asking yourself, “what does Spam have to do with Austin, Texas?” I will tell you…
There is an interesting festival there called Spamarama. Don’t you love it? This event, typically held in April, includes a cook-off, a music event of local artists, Spamalympics and, of course, an Spamburger eating contest.
There are many other fun things to do in Austin. There’s an event called Eeyore’s Birthday Party in April that is a fundraiser for nonprofit groups in the area. This fun party is full of costume contests, games, musical sessions and much more. Take the kids or grand-kids and spend the day celebrating this beloved donkey from Winnie the Pooh.
And only in Austin can you find the Pun-Off World Championships. What is that? It’s an event held in May where competitors have a duel of words. Something worth seeing definitely.
Then there is a Bat Festival held in August. This is Austin’s largest Arts & Crafts show featuring Arts, Crafts, Music, Food, Bat Watching, Children’s Activities, and Educational Displays. Attendance is around 40,000!
These are just some of the events in Austin and doesn’t even touch the local shopping, fine eating and so much more. Traveling to Austin is something everyone should do. If you are doing it by RV, there are some very nice parks locally.
