Pecan Street Festival
This biannual street festival of arts & crafts vendors and live music knows how to party. Try an art class, or just park yourself in front of three stages with one of the many handheld food options and enjoy a performance from the likes of Gina Chavez, Residual Kid, or Vallejo, among others. Don't worry about bringing the kids, they'll be busy getting their faces painted, staring rapt at one of the traveling street magicians, or petting zoo animals. Sat.-Sun., May 3-4. Free.
Sixth Street, from Brazos to I-35
