F1 Austin Fan Fest Begins Today

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 05:06 PM CDT
Workers at Austin Fan Fest are down to the wire making final preparations for F1 Weekend.
Dozens of people have been setting up stages, banners, and interactive booths for days.

One employee told us he started working at 8 a.m. Thursday morning and was still working at 5 a.m. Friday.

Once the equipment is set up, fans can expect to see appearances from F1 drivers, bands from all over the country and get up close and personal with the cars.

If you don’t have tickets to the big name concerts like Areosmith, Flor Rida or Enrique Iglesias, there are a lot of free concerts.

Kickoff is Friday.
