AUSTIN (KXAN) – About 110 people forgot the ties and socks as they celebrated Father’s Day a bit differently Sunday.
Instead, they boarded a boat for a Father’s Day “BrewBCruise” on Lady Bird Lake, put by 365ThingsAustin, Capital Cruises and Austin Tour Company. The ride proved popular and completely sold out.
Fred Flores said he enjoyed spending time with his two daughters on the cruise.
“Everything is beautiful — the food, the drinks, everything,” he said.
Attendees were treated to beer from Uncle Billy’s, pulled pork tacos, brisket sliders, raffles and live music by Austin’s Beat Bodega on the cruise.
“I think the best part is just the community. You get to come on, it’s a family-friendly event, so you get to come on with your family, bring your dad, you get to hangout, enjoy some food, have a few beers and just kick back and enjoy the downtown skyline,” said Jordan Harris, experience manager for Austin Tour Company.
