April is an exciting month to call Austin home! Nearly every weekend is jam-packed with fun events the whole family can enjoy. Several Austin original events are back this month, like Honk! TX, the Zilker Garden Festival, and Eeyore's Birthday Party. Laugh with your fellow Austinites at the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival, and sample delicious eats and drinks at the city Food and Wine Festival. Thousands of runners will take over downtown Austin in mid-April for the Capitol 10K race. Don't forget to join Reilly Realtors at SpringFest this month in the Hill Country Galleria!
