No way kids in Austin can say they’re bored this weekend. So many things to do

This weekend is one of those very full weekends for families in and around Austin. It will be hard to choose what to do, but here are some of the highlights (If you’re not already occupied by end-of-the-school-year activities). Keep in mind, we’re expected to get some weather, especially on Sunday, so well many of these are indoor activities, those that are outside might get postponed or canceled.

Texas Museum of Science & Technology Star Party. Every Friday in May, look at the stars in the parking lot. 8-10 p.m. Friday. Texas Museum of Science & Technology, 1220 Toro Grande Drive, Cedar Park. txmost.org.
