Spread over 350 acres of public land, Zilker Park is one of the best venues Austin City has to offer. The Park is named after Andrew Jackson Zilker, the benefactor of the land who donated it to the public back in 1917.

What to Expect at ACL Festival:
The weather conditions at Austin City are severely hot around October but that isn’t stopping anyone from attending the biggest festival around City, just remember to prepare accordingly. Bring loose clothing with comfortable shoes or slippers to walk around grass easily. Keep in mind that ACL is one of the best and wildest festival there is so there are going to be the whole city plus outsiders joining in the crowd.
There will be heavy sweating due to the crowd and heat. So be sure to bring a disposable water bottle with you which you can refill again and again from absolutely free water containers all around the Austin City Limits festival grounds you would not want to get dehydrated and ruining all the fun. Also, you can only bring light stuff with you like basic necessity products, for example, a towel, blanket or small chair to sit per person and small purse to put all the stuff in, but no big backpacks are allowed here at the festival.
Austin City Limits Festival Lineup:
It wouldn’t be ACL if it backed down from providing back to back music alternating between various genres from hip-hop, rock, pop, indie and country and a little bit of live acts of the electronic genre. After all Austin City Limits Festival has to live up to its title “Live Music Capital of The World”. Each stage is set to showcase performances on a particular genre and all organized at their best.
With the headliners Paul McCartney, Metallica and Childish Gambino and a few of more acts from Alvvays, Noname, Father John Misty, Hozier, Japanese Breakfast, the Breeders, Nelly, Residente, Camilla Cabello, Travis Scott and many more this year’s ACL are sure to top the charts in no time.

There are tons of way to get there. Your first option is to avail the festival’s shuttle services, you can get them easily at the corner of Fourth and Guadalupe Streets at Downtown Republic Square. You’ll be dropped at the Barton Springs West Entrance to Zilker Park. Another option is Uber as it is serving as the official ride partner with ACL Festival.
Final and the most fun option is to hire an official Austin Bicycle and there are more than 50 stations in Central Austin for that. For the Bicycle route head to Uncle Billy’s Smokehouse & Brewery on Barton Springs Road along Kinney Avenue, there you’ll find the bicycle valet ready to dock your Bicycle plus there are bike racks on each of the entrance to the festival. And I almost forgot there are some pedicab companies that operate around Austin if you want to rely on your pedaling powered you can avail that. And if you are at a walking distance, the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail take you right to Zilker Park.

The Michigan Small Scale Live Steamers, as a club, was first established 2002. Its members work in all kinds of industries but we share one common interest, running small scale live steam engines every chance we get.
Our club is based in Southeastern Michigan and we get together once or more a month at member’s homes or at previously scheduled events. Most of our members have been
Starting with 2003, our club would like to make an effort to share our hobby and expose it to as may new people as we can. To achieve this goal we are creating portable tracks that can be taken to different events and assembled in as little as an hour. These tracks are not portable layouts in that they do not have buildings, trees, etc. They are elevated oval tables that have one or more loops of “G” gauge track for running the engines. May of the members have Garage Railways at home where landscaping, buildings,miniature people and running Live Steam Engines. We are also happy to discuss the aspect of the hobby with people as well.
So if you have any events that you think you would like us to participate in, we would be more than happy to discuss the opportunity. Boy Scout events, Church Fundraiser’s, Local City events, Corporate Picnics, the possibilities are endless.
Drop us an e-mail so we can get to steaming’ right away.
On April 28, 29, and 30, 2006, the people of the Central Michigan community of Shepherd will be celebrating their 48th Annual Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival, and we invite you to come and celebrate with us.
Never did we dream back in 1958 when we made about 100 gallons of maple syrup and served a few hundred meals at our first one-day festival that we would grow to processing 12,000 meals at a three-day festival. If it had not been for our many visitors from all locations in Michigan and neighboring states, we could not have accomplished all of this.
The original idea for having the festival was to earn enough money to finance an eight-week summer recreation program for children in our school district. As we have grown, we have been able to fund a ten-week summer program. We were also able to build and operate a community swimming pool and purchase land to develop a community park. We continue to work on our park project.
ALL WORK ON THE SYRUP, CANDY, AND ALL OTHER AREAS OF THE FESTIVAL IS VOLUNTEER and almost everyone participates! Children work with adults carrying sap buckets during the sap run in late February and March. Many retirees are our most faithful sausage makers. Would you believe that we make two-and-one-half tons of sausage one week before the festival? Then we all work together again during festival weekend.
As usual there will be the famous and delicious PANCAKE, MAPLE SYRUP, AND SAUSAGE MEALS served at the Shepherd High School Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. All of the planned activities add up to a most enjoyable weekend. Witness hometown hospitality at its best and join us in the “Sweetest Little Town Anywhere Around” on April 23, 24, and 25.
Arnie and Merrie first helped in maple syrup production when the Shepherd Sugar Bush workers tapped a maple woods in their neighborhood west of Shepherd. Arnie was soon trained by the dedicated Sugar Bush crew in all aspects of syrup production from helping to tap the trees to canning the syrup. He is proud of the improvements the Sugar Bush Corporation has made over the past fifteen years; first building a storage addition on to the existing Sugar Bush and then the most recent construction, housing the new evaporator in a new Sugar Bush building. On Festival Weekend, you are most likely to find him at the Sugar Bush explaining the history and the process of syrup making in Shepherd to visitors to the village. He also serves as the treasurer of the Michigan Maple Syrup Association.
Serving pancakes in the High School cafeteria first brought Merrie to Festival activities when the couple moved to the Shepherd area in the ‘70s. She found it a good way to make friends in a new community and also enjoyed serving and chatting with the many out-of-town visitors. Frances Adams, Pat Rhynard, Bessie Musser, and Vivian Jerome were long-time kitchen organizers who drafted apprentices to learn their jobs and
Merrie became more involved in the cafeteria service. She can usually be found somewhere in the cafeteria on Festival week-end, doing anything from replenishing supplies to dumping wastebaskets!
Arnie and Merrie, both math teachers (Arnie is recently retired from CMU, Merrie is at Shepherd High School), are the parents of Laurie, a Department of Defense employee who lives in Annapolis, Maryland, and Carey, a recent graduate of Central Michigan University. Both children enjoyed summer recreation in Shepherd and the Hammels feel it is important that this opportunity continues to be available to today’s youth and are
glad to be part of the community effort to make it so.
