Down just a few miles from the ATX in San Marcos, they have a little party called float fest. As the name might suggest, it’s all about float the river and music. How great is it they have combined two great Austin traditions. Yes you can camp. Yes you can not float and just fest it up music style. And yes, you won’t spend a lot of money at this event. As fare as the music line up, I’v never heard of any of these people, but I’m old. We have never been to this event, but it’s on the maybe list for 2016.
