    Hey Texans - Planning a visit to Austin in TX in May and we're tryin to figure out which wknd to go. We were there a few yrs ago and there was something called 'first splash' going on at the lake on Sunday. I dont see any indication of that going on this yr (other than the one in September). Anyone know anything bout this?

    I don't know about the "splash" thing, but I'm a Texan! You have good taste. You will have a ball in Austin, it doesn't matter when you go. Bring your cowboy baby and let what happens in Austin happen!

    Splash Day Weekend is held by several key gay bars and other Austin community businesses the first weekend in May - this year it takes place over May 4-6, 2012. Then at the close of the summer season, Splash Weekend at Hippie Hollow is held over Labor Day weekend. This year the Splash weekend is August 31 to September 3, 2012 (Labor Day weekend), for Last Splash
