Eeyore’s Birthday Party, 2016

Celebrants gathered in Pease Park to cheer Eeyore with a birthday party.   Begun in 1963 by UT English students, Austinites have turned out in costume every year since. Sponsored now by the Friends of the Forest Foundation, Eeyores benefits a number of local charities and features May Poles, drum circles, egg tosses, and beer and food.  Performing bands this year included the Uranium Savages and Flounders Without Eyes.
