Thoroughfare becomes main hub of nightlife during Austin festival
For the 10 days of the SXSW Conference and Festivals, a stretch of 6th Street in Austin is shut down to vehicles (other than police and emergency ones). The roadway, partly cobbled in brick, becomes a massive open-air party drawing crowds of increasing size as the event heads to its climactic weekend.
