September has traditionally marked the end of summer and beginning of fall, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop! There are plenty of amazing events happening all around Austin this September, so we've included some of our favorites on this list of things to do this month. September 2013 is a great time to catch a concert in Austin; well-known artists Maroon 5, Miranda Lambert and Iron Maiden are performing at the new Austin 360 Amphitheater, and pop group OneRepublic is coming to the Moody Theater. You can also get splattered with color at the Color Run and Color in Motion 5Ks, or support U.S. soldiers and the victims of September 11th at the Patriot Day 5K in Pflugerville. The Pecan Street Festival at the end of the month is one of Austin's most popular events, and locals come from all around for the live music, food, and fun!
