Next month's Fun Fun Fun Fest (Nov. 7th & 8th) marks the end of the 2009 Austin festival scene. After a crazy SXSW and a muddy ACL, a great weekend to finish it off sounds awesome. If you still haven't bought your tickets yet, FunX3 Fest is having a scavenger hunt this Saturday. Teams (2 – 5 people) will compete to win tickets to FFF and even VIP Upgrade. The competition starts at Red 7 (611 E. 7th), with sign up beginning at 6pm. The hunt lasts from 7-10pm and will end at the Waterloo Park parking lot (12th and Red River). It doesn't cost anything to enter, but they do ask you bring five cans of food per person to donate to Caritas of Austin. More info, including rules/prizes are down below. (via)
