It's been over 15 years since the Austin Aqua Festival was held here in Austin and to this day people still bring it up. They talk of great music, great food, and those great Skipper pins.
Aqua Fest was an Austin staple that fell on hard times in its later years. It saw tremendous turnouts for the various activites which included live music, fireworks, drag boat races, the kid's fishing tournaments, golf tournaments, raft races, and so much more.
The biggest part of the festival was the music. Some of the biggest names in music played Aqua Fest. George Strait, Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Doug Sahm, Asleep At The Wheel, The Faboulous Thunderbirds, Ruben Ramos, and many more have all taken the Aqua Fest stage in the past.
Many Austinites were sad to see it fade away. Here we are in 2016 and the question we ask is, would you like to see Aqua Fest return?
Let us know if you would like to see Aqua Fest back in Austin and tell us what your favorite part of it was!
