The grand reopening of Waterloo Park, or Waterloo Park CommUNITY Day, is happening – and it’s happening on Aug. 14, the same day as the Pride Parade. It doesn’t take much imagination to visualize what traffic will be like on the big day, so plan accordingly. The festivities begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication at Moody Amphitheater at 10 a.m., followed by local music and dance performances and family-friendly activities and food options throughout the 11-acre park. The day culminates with a “Taste of Austin” concert showcase featuring a lineup of nearly a dozen musical performances. Consult the map for a timeline of festival events, street closures and parking garages. Wear your most festive face mask and be safe.
