AFHC goes on a Bat Cruise

Friday, September 13th, come join the Austin Facial Hair Club for a 3hr cruise along Lady Bird Lake, and experience one of Austin’s most iconic sights: The Congress Avenue Bridge Bats! An estimated 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats live under the Congress Avenue Bridge. It is truly a magnificent sight seeing these wonderful creatures fly out from under the bridge at sunset. There’s a reason these guys are on every single Austin “Must do” list, and now you can see why, with us as your hairy guides! Sign in at 7 PM at the boat, the MVP night Hawk. Our cruise will leave the dock at 7:30 PM sharp! The maximum capacity is only 50 people, so get your tickets a.s.a.p.!! The boat has tables and chairs (and a bathroom) downstairs, and open deck upstairs for a great view of the city and the bats. It will depart from the docks below the Hyatt Regency on Town Lake. Parking in the area is limited. The city parking lot at the corner of S. 1st St. and Barton Springs Road is now a pay lot. So everyone please be careful where you park! Don’t get towed!
