Oh good, hula hoops

Friday, September 16, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Though there has been some trouble in the past, the city of Austin is moving forward with moving forward and has already begun the work of planning this year’s New Year’s Eve festival. The city has put out a call for “ANY Austin area creative or arts organization including visual and performing artists, musicians, performers, interactive entertainment, and others” who would like to be a part of the festival. The city will announce the winners mid-November. To be clear, the announcement states that the city is looking for things like musical acts, actors, jugglers, storytellers, dancers, fire dancers, hula-hoopers, aerial performance, illustrators, spray can artists and, apparently, etcetera. Details on how to apply can be found here.
