Cloudy Sunday on SoCo Elizabeth Ucles

James Anthony Johnson (left) is one of many musicians that play on South Congress Avenue during the weekend to tourists. Whether it's tourists or Austinites, it's not uncommon to see people walking on SoCo without a dog by their side.

Texan art is a common sight along South Congress. Most of it can be found on the outsides of the shops to entice shoppers to the wonders on the inside.

A walk down SoCo wouldn't be the same without seeing these guys in their red 'Save the Children' shirts. Jim and Chris recently shared that Save the Children is raising daily and monthly donations for clean water for the Flint water crisis.

After 38 years of balloon making on SoCo, Don Clancy is retiring from the profession to pursue business is the music industry. "I did it for the kids," said a bittersweet Clancy.

Just a day after the 'No Ban No Wall' protest at the Capitol, Sunday on SoCo had a slightly different atmosphere to it. Many protesters still walked the street with signs in hand.

'Austin Motel' serves as a staple landmark for SoCo since its establishment in 1938. The quirky motel also catches the eye with its 'So Close Yet So Far Out' caption on the other side.
