On South Congress, skyrocketing rents are forcing some local businesses to relocate. What does that mean for the area’s future?

The food trailer park on South Congress was one of Austin’s most popular. But the trailers had to clear the lot this week to make way for a hotel and retail space.

Four food trailers made the two-mile move to a vacant lot at South Lamar and Bluebonnet Lane – including Austin Frigid Frog Shaved Ice.

Austin relived a slice of the past this weekend. The Lonestar Round Up Car Show kicked off this Friday and hundreds of classic cars are all over town.

What started 12 years ago with only 80 cars, turned into one of the biggest motor shows in the state.

South Congress could be missing some visitors by the end of this weekend, and not just because the last of Austin’s South by Southwest visitors have fled to the airport: the land between East Milton and East Monroe streets on South Congress Avenue where nearly a dozen food trailers are parked each day could be vacated any day now.  

When KUT News visited the park on Friday, almost every trailer offered a different closing day: “this Sunday,” “by the end of March,” “sometime around April” or “nothing is certain yet.”
