BMX at the 2013 Austin Fan Fest
Austin Fan Fest 2013
Festival season continues in Austin, Texas, and the local organizers behind the upcoming X Games Austin in 2014 were on hand for the latest festival to grace downtown Austin: Fan Fest 2013. With a lineup of live music, as well as a street course and mini ramp, local BMXers and skateboarders celebrated the arrival of the interactive four-day festival, which is now in its second year and held as a tribute to the citizens of Austin for hosting an annual Formula 1 race. Check the gallery for a sampling of the X Games zone at Fan Fest 2013.
