AUSTIN -- Thousands of Austinites packed Pease Park on Saturday for a very special celebration: Eeyore's 50th Birthday.
From animals to fairies, many dressed in costumes to honor the sad donkey from "Winnie the Pooh".
"You come here, you can dress however you want. Just have a good old time, come as you want. It's Austin. So dress Austintacious," Robert Cowan said during the event.
All proceeds from the party benefit several non-profit groups in Austin.
