Downtown street closures this weekend

It’s festival season, remember?

The city’s first giant festival of the fall—ACL Fest—starts next week, but one of its oldest takes place Saturday. The Pecan Street Festival starts at 3pm Saturday on the part of East Sixth Street we now refer to as “Dirty” (and which was originally named “Pecan Street,” naturally). These are the closures for that fest, courtesy of Downtown Austin Alliance.
