While the most popular day in February is undoubtably Valentine's Day, there are so many fun-filled events happening in Austin all throughout the month. The annual Austin Marathon is back in February to challenge runners with a full or half marathon and even a 5K through the Paramount Theater. February is also a great month to check out unique festivals like Austin Jugglefest and That Takes the Cake!, a confectionary competition event. The whole family can enjoy the amazing feats of performers from Cirque du Soleil and the Peking Acrobats this month as well. Finally, don't miss your chance to tour several of Austin's stunning homes with modern designs through the Modern Homes Tour.
