Austin Symphony July 4th Concert & Fireworks at Auditorium Shores

UPDATE - We'll meet at the northwest corner of Barton Springs Road and South 1st Street at 7 pm and then walk over to the lawn. Please see updated map below. If you miss us, we'll be on lawn between the artificial lake and the Long Center. I'll mark the spot with red balloons.

---------------

We're gathering on the lawn at Auditorium Shores for the largest Independence Day celebration in Austin. The Austin Symphony will perform patriotic music and the ever-popular 1812 Overture and there will be spectacular fireworks over Lady Bird Lake.

We'll be on the lawn between the artificial lake and the Long Center. See map below. I'll have balloons to mark our spot. If anything changes I'll update in comments

The event is free. The Austin Symphony Orchestra will begin performing at 8:30 p.m. and the fireworks will begin at 9:30 p.m., ending at 10:00 p.m. Come early, bring a picnic and a blanket to sit on (alcohol and glass containers are not permitted in the park).

Parking information here:

Afterwards, we'll walk over to Aussies Grill & Beach Bar for a few drinks

    I'm north by the arboretum and would be interested in a carpool. Don't know if I'll be up for drinks afterwards, though

    Anyone from Hyde Park area want to carpool?

    July 4, 2013

  • david g.

    anybody wanna share a ride?

    July 3, 2013

    • Sammye K.

      If there is room for me in your carpool, I would prefer that. Otherwise, I will take the bus but not take my bike, thanks to Marshalls reply.

      July 4, 2013

    • Sammye K.

      I am willing to drive, btw, just trying to help with traffic.

    I'm coming from the north side. Anyone wanna ride together and split the cost of a parking garage?

    1 · July 3, 2013

  • Sammye K.

    I am coming down from the Arboretum area so was thinking about catching a bus with my bike, it would get me as far as 6th and San Antonio, then I cycle over to the meet up. Any one have experience with this type of commute?

      Should be pretty close (~10" walk) to the event so I don't think it'll be a problem. One thing I can foresee is the bike rack getting filled up on the bus, but the walk isn't too bad. I'm thinking about doing the same..

    July 1, 2013

  • Leta

    i'll also be riding my bike in--in a mob this size what about something distinctive--a balloon or neon hooping or something notable even for Austin as a guide?

    July 1, 2013

  • JANICE

    I ll be bringing my parents. Not sure they will be up for drinks afterwards... Next time

    July 1, 2013

    I will bring my daughter, too.

    i live fairly close so i'll be riding my bike. the idea to
    meet first and walk as a group sounds best.

    June 29, 2013

  • J. J. E

    Just a suggestion, I did this last year and you will not be able to find anyone in that big of a crowd. I would have everyone meet first and than walk into the park.

    June 29, 2013

  • Katie

    Looking forward to it!
