UT Football And F-1 Take Over Austin

Updated: Sunday, November 17 2013, 09:18 AM CST

From UT to downtown, Austin is filled with people from all over the world this weekend.

“It’s amazing, just seeing all the different people from all over the world that are there, like on the shuttle bus in between, there were like ten different languages being spoken around me, so it’s amazing how many people come to Austin! To see this,” says Ashley Turner.

But with both the fan fest and the UT game, getting a hotel is definitely more of a challenge.

Raul Garza is visiting from San Antonio and says “there’s no way, you would have either had to stay in Round Rock or Buda or farther down from Round Rock.”

Tailgaters like Garza decided to skip finding a room altogether and is heading back to San Antonio.

Frank Balazs is visiting his daughter who lives in Austin and says, “There’s a lot going on here, there certainly is, but my daughter was saying, I think every other weekend in Austin, there’s always something going on.”

But it seems this weekend, there’s a lot more than usual.

Which begs the question: How much is too much?

“People might be mad because of the traffic but I think it’s awesome there’s so much stuff going on cause there’s stuff to enjoy,” says Balazs

His daughter admits, “There is a lot going on in Austin,” but she thinks “it’s perfect.”

As the city gains popularity and world recognition, you can expect the crowds will keep coming.
