Map: Pecan St. Festival, Cinco de Mayo, More Weekend Events Close Off Parts of Downtown


This weekend, parts of downtown Austin will be closed Saturday and Sunday for different events.

The March for Babies will start at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. Registration for those who want to march starts at 8 a.m. at Auditorium Shores. The march raises money for children who are born too early. As a result of the march, Congress Avenue and a few other streets will be closed in the morning on Saturday.

Later in the afternoon, the arts and crafts Pecan Street Festival will start at 11 a.m. in downtown Austin on Sixth Street. The festival, which is free to attend, will close Sixth Street from I-35 to Brazos Street all day Saturday and Sunday.

And finally on Sunday, Austin's Cinco de Mayo celebration will take place on W. Second Street. A small portion of the street will be closed from Guadalupe Street to San Antonio Street from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
