Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: AquaPalooza Coming to Lake Travis Austin TX July 2010

AquaPalooza Coming to Lake Travis Austin TX July 2010

AquaPalooza is coming to Lake Travis in Austin TX in July 2010.  No exact date has been set yet, but it's supposed to be one of the last two weekends in July.

What is AquaPalooza?  Aqua means Water.  AquaPalooza's debut was in 2006 and it's a huge, FREE, on-water celebration open to anyone who shows up.  Last year on Lake Martin in Alabama, with Alan Jackson as the headliner, there were 4000 boats and 35,000 people.  I saw Alan Jackson in concert in Dallas TX back in the Fall of 1994... yes, a loooonnnng time ago...

Yes, Lake Travis was very dry last year, but the water has already gone up over 20 feet since then. We're in a rainy El Nino, it's even raining today, so the hopes are that the Lake Travis will be back up to normal, if not above normal, by July.

As more details are released for this fun Austin TX activity, along with who will be playing, I'll post more about the event, so keep coming back for updates!

Hi Donna!  Like John said, I love the lake photo!  Now, 35,000 folks is a TON of people on the lake at once!  We have those lake 'tie-ups' here too but, not NEARLY that many attend! 

As for the rain--SAME here--I'm tired of wrinkled fingers, aren't you?!

Hi Donna,

Let's keep praying for more rain and looks like this week will get our prayers answered. We have a long way to go but we can come close..I know the places on the lake and all the boaters would love to see more rain and this event take place! Keep us updated.
