Possibility of rain means big parking changes for ABC Kite Festival

Parking for this weekend’s ABC Kite Festival just got a little trickier.

The possibility of rain has prompted organizers and the Austin Parks and Recreation Department to eliminate general attendance on-site parking for Sunday’s event at Zilker Park.

Forecasts currently call for as much as 1 inch of rain.

Even with the possibility of storms and a lack of on-site parking, the festival is still expected to take place, organizers said. Attendees are encouraged to use alternate forms of transportation, such as bikes, buses or ride-hailing apps.

The closure doesn’t impact the ABC Kite Festival’s planned breakfast and fun run, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department said. People attending those events will still be able to park at Zilker Park.
