the Bright Side - Eeyore's Birthday Party

Eeyore's Birthday Party is pretty much a hippy renaissance fair. If you've ever been to the Renaissance Fair in the outskirts of Houston, you'll know exactly what I mean.  There's a maypole, face painting, henna tattoos and plenty of gypsies and fairies - all with the "weird" Austin flavor.

The festival has been around way longer than I've been alive and even has its own wikipedia page! Check it out to learn about the history.

When we got to the party, there was a huge drum circle; the drums were scattered throughout the crowd.

Check out the Eeyore of Liberty standing behind the drum circle. I didn't get a good picture of its face, sorry! It's the statue of liberty with Eeyore's face.

Live music, of course! These guys were really good.

Eeyore's birthday party is about as Austin as it gets. There's plenty of food and beer, and all the proceeds go to a charitable foundation. It was a great way to spend Kid's Day and I'll definitely be going back next year!
