Summer is just around the corner, and there are so many fun things to do in the Austin area this May! Head downtown for the Pecan Street Festival on 6th Street, or celebrate folk music at the Kerrville Folk Festival. Several big name acts will be headlining at the Austin 360 Amphitheater this month, including the Dave Mathews Band, Rush, and Kenny Chesney. Test your endurance by climbing the stairs to the top of the Frost Bank tower at the Fight for Air Climb. Don't miss your chance to tour some of Austin's most exquisite homes in Serene Hills at the 2015 Austin Parade of Homes. We'd love to see you at SpringFest in the Hill Country Galleria! Come visit our booth by the amphitheater from 11 am - 6 pm.
