The holiday celebrations may be over, but there are still plenty of fun events to attend in the Austin area this January. Celebrate the first week of the year with several free concerts during Austin Free Week. Start shopping for your spring and summertime activities at the Austin Boat Show and Austin Home and Garden Show. Kids will love the exciting trick shots and basketball plays of the Harlem Globetrotters. If fitness is one of your resolutions for 2016, consider signing up for the 3M Half Marathon. We hope you will find something fun to do with your family this January.
