Mayor grants local 'Supernatural' stars an official Austin holiday

"Supernatural" stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki both frequent Austin when they aren't filming the show, which is entering its 14th season.

AUSTIN -- Saturday was a big day for Austinites and actors Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.

Mayor Steve Adler proclaimed a new day to celebrate in Austin -- "Supernatural Day" -- in honor of Ackles and Padalecki's hit CW TV series that just got renewed for its 14th season.

Fans and crew members flew into Austin from all over the country for the celebration.

Perhaps from now on, you can celebrate June 23 by having a beer at the Ackles family brewery in Dripping Springs, the Family Business Beer Co.

Ackles and Padalecki were in town for the Paws for AKF charity event, which was created to benefit the actors' "The PACK Fund" and Austin Pets Alive! dog rescues, at The San Jac Saloon. Two fans of the show, Sanda Echivarria and Tonia Schneider organized the event. Mayor Adler and the actors' wives were also in attendance.
