Keep Austin Weird Fest & 5K

It’s that time of year again, weirdos, with the only festival where a twerking zombie and a hippie caveman are social norms. This is a race we can get behind, because no one cares who wins and the focus is on drinking. Bands and businesses are littered throughout the three or so miles of costumed zaniness. The festival starts at 3pm with the 5K at 6pm, if you even make it to the starting line. Free for kids (12 & under) with donation of three canned goods. 3pm. $25-125.
