Austin has declared Sunday Sept. 25 “Keep Austin Peculiar Day” in honor of Tim Burton attending Fantastic Fest for the screening of his new film, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” A proclamation will be presented to Burton by Austin resident and director Robert Rodriguez.
We can’t think of a more fitting film and time to ‘Keep the Austin Weird’ vibe alive with the quirkiest director we know!
