Austin Holiday stroll coming up
Downtown Austin Alliance's Holiday Stroll is a really lovely and very musical event. Carol singing at the Capitol steps, loads of shops and people and all sorts of music along the way, and by the time you get as far as La Pena and Mexic Arte, a bit more of the Hispanic tradition kicking in. Anywhere you join in along Congress, though, it's a fine holiday evening.
Here's this year's plan, courtesy of the Austin Music Alliance.
Saturday, December 5
6:00-7:00 pm: Holiday Sing-Along
south steps of the Capitol
