Don’t howl at the rules

Thursday, September 12, 2019 by Tai Moses

In an attempt to ensure that the popular lunar event remains safe and family-friendly, Parks and Recreation is continuing to put limits on the number of attendees at Barton Springs Howl at the Moon, also known as Full Moon Swim. Howling at the full moon at Barton Springs is a weird and wild community tradition that started small but has grown to top 2,500 people in the summertime. PARD began to rein in the event in 2017 with new guidelines for attendance. In keeping with the new rules, at the next event this Friday, Sept. 13, attendance will be limited to 750 people after 8:30 p.m and attendees must pay the Barton Springs Pool entrance fee. Howl away, but don’t be rowdy.
