217.12 6th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival

Man, it’s hot. An ice cream festival sounds like the perfect way to try and stay cool.

This annual festival will have a homemade ice cream making contest, a popsicle stick sculpture contest and probably the most popular of the contests — the ice cream eating contest. Their goal is to see who can eat a gallon of ice cream the fastest. It sounds like a fun event and a sure way to get a brain freeze!

They’ll also have live entertainment, games and fun. If you can stand the heat, this is the place to be in Austin today.

When: Today, August 4th

Time: 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Admission: $10 (ice cream is included with admission) , kids eight & under are free

Location:
Fiesta Gardens
2101 Jesse E. Segovia Street

I am a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.
