Celebrate Eeyore’s Birthday in the Austinot Podcast, Ep. #8

Eeyores Birthday PartyIt’s time to celebrate Eeyore’s Birthday Party! This annual event at Pease Park is in its 49th year and getting bigger and better with age.

Throw on a costume for the costume contest, bring your canine friends, and get the kids ready for sack races and face painting. Non-profit vendors will provide food and drink.

These are only a few of the exciting things you’ll experience at Eeyore’s Birthday.

This year, park for FREEĀ at the State parking garage E and lot 3 onĀ Colorado, between 16th and 17th streets. Shuttle busses will pick you up there and take you to Pease Park, and return you to your vehicle when the fun is done. The shuttles will run all day long. There is no parking available at Pease Park, so don’t try!
