Aus10™ Fun: Swing Into Spring With This Weekend’s Recommended Events! April 6 – 9, 2017

As illustrated by the blue bonnets canvasing the Central Texas landscape, spring has most definitely sprung in Austin. From minor league baseball’s opening weekend to The Texas Burlesque Fest, there’s no time like the present to swing into spring. Here are some of the events happening this weekend that are sure to score.

Thursday, April 6

The Texas Burlesque Festival

This three-day hoedown and showdown celebrates the revival of burlesque, vaudeville and the accompanying et cetera. Organizers invite you to refine your bump and grind with raucous parties, a roundtable/brunch, workshops and performances. Sponsored by Austin companies like Forbidden Fruit, Fleshlight and the Austin Burlesque Alliance, it sounds like this may be the perfect opportunity to let your wild side out for a ride.
