Sixth Street bars were flooded with people over the first weekend that they have been open in more than two months.


Bars in Austin were shut down March 17 in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Mayor Steve Adler responded on Sunday to social media videos and photos of the crowds downtown, urging caution.


At least one person was arrested for firing a gun on Sixth Street.

Daylight hours also saw Austin residents rush back into activity. Four county parks were shut down due to crowding while thousands of people rented kayaks or paddle boards from the Texas Rowing Center—an all time high, the owner told KVUE.
