It’s time again for the world’s largest hot sauce festival! Austin takes salsa very seriously, so the competition is going to be (quite literally) heating up today.

Come hungry! The 27th-annual hot sauce contest has three levels of competition: individuals (homemade), restaurants, and commercial bottlers. They will also have plenty of food vendors including Amy’s Ice Cream, Torchy’s Tacos, Garbo’s Lobster Truck, and more serving up their specialty dishes. Plus there is great live music all day and a craft beer tent where you can wash down it all down and give your mouth a much-needed break.

Not only is this event a ton of fun, it also benefits a wonderful cause. Admission is free with donation of three healthy, nonperishable food items or cash donation to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas.

We’ve reached the point in the Austin summer when it’s too hot to do basically anything. Luckily, it’s time again for a major water event that is fun enough and cool enough to get us all out of the house: The 7th Annual Splash Mob!

The concept is pretty simple: Be there. Start dry, get wet. Bring your squirt guns, all filled up! Bring water balloons, a water cannon, laser-seeking water grenades, a truck with a freakin’ water tank and hose, or whatever you’ve got! It’s going to be a soakin’ good time all over again.

Once again, it’s going to be an awesome time, it shouldn’t be irresponsible or mean. No squirting unarmed people.

Don’t start until they sound the air-horn, or else that’s cheating

Pro Tip: Wear goggles.

See you out there!

When: Today, August 13th

Time: 2:30 p.m.

Location:
6th and Trinity
