ABC Kite Fest
“It’s a great family festival, and one everyone can enjoy. It truly is such a fun day at Zilker. On top of more kites than you can imagine, they’re also plenty of concessions. Warning: Parking is a major issue! This festival always draws a crowd, so plan to ride your bike or take one of the shuttles.”
March 4, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Zilker Park, 2100 Barton Spring Road
Admission is free.

“This is a wonderful event where fashion-industry insiders come together to talk about the future of our business. Last year, I was invited to be in a panel on ethical fashion and business ethics. It’s also a great time to network with other professionals in the film, fashion and business realms.”
