The Tesla Owners Club of Austin will also celebrate Elon Musk Day, in honor of the company's chief executive. Musk set down his own roots in Texas last year, after growing increasingly frustrated with California's COVID-19 restrictions. He also moved his private foundation, according to a December filing with the Texas secretary of state.

Elon Musk has recently ramped up hiring investments in the Austin area with 10,000 job openings at Tesla's new Gigafactory looking to be filled between now and 2022. In July, the electric automaker picked Austin as the site for its largest auto assembly plant, employing approximately 5,000 workers. The factory is geared toward the company's Cybertruck pickup and will be a second U.S. manufacturing site for the Model Y small SUV, largely for distribution to the East Coast.   

Musk also extended an open invitation to join his aerospace company SpaceX, which has over 100 temporary and full-time job openings available in the Brownsville, Texas area. One job posting last month revealed that the company is breaking ground on a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Austin, producing equipment for Starlink, SpaceX's global high-speed internet service made up of a constellation of satellites. Musk's Boring Company also posted several job openings in Austin in November, hinting that one of the company's tunnel systems could be coming to the city.

In addition, Musk recently said he would donate tens of millions of dollars to Cameron County schools and the city of Brownsville. 

Tuesday will also include a slew of earnings from companies including Abbott Labs, AutoNation, Harley-Davidson, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Netflix, Philip Morris, Procter & Gamble and Xerox.
