Float Fest is quickly approaching and some city officials are concerned about the environmental impact the event may have on the San Marcos River.
The live music festival is set to happen Aug. 28-30, giving those who attend an option to float the river during performances. Festivalgoers can also camp on event grounds over night.
“Float Fest is a wonderful concept, a great way for our community to come together and float down our beautiful river and enjoy good music and company,” said Meredith Miller, senior programming coordinator at the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment.
Miller said she feels Float Fest organizers did a poor job of minimizing environmental issues that accompanied the festival last year.
