Cassidy, who said he works for Dell Technologies, said he’s marching every day around 2 p.m. from Austin City Hall to the festival to promote his message as part of an effort called Walk for Vegas. Cassidy said we shouldn’t live in fear because of the “Weak and cowardly.”

He said he’ll continue walking from City Hall every day of the fest.
