Around Town: Full Moon Party
A chilling howl breaks the silence of the night and the full-throated yelps of a chorus of werewolves, oops, Austinites, soon follows. At the Full Moon Party, that happens at Barton Springs Pool at the climax of every lunar cycle, you’ll find hipsters, teenagers, middle-aged men and women, lovers, and parents with kids gathering to celebrate Mother Nature’s monthly event. This is one way people beat the summer heat as they bathe in the essence of Austin and of course, howl at the magical full moon. It starts at 9, when the pool stops charging admission and the moon is about to rise above the city’s skyline.
We hope you enjoy this video that captures one of those weird and fun scenes that helps make Austin special. Maybe next time when the moon is full, you may add your voice to the howling chorus that serenades one of Mother Nature’s most magnificent creations.
