Nothing goes better with hot summer weather than a cold scoop of ice cream.Â Finishing it up before it melts down your arm can be a feat in and of itself.Â If you love ice cream (and who doesn't), you're in for aÂ real treat.Â Â Grab your friends and family and head on over to Fiesta Gardens this Saturday for the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival.
Since Waterloo will be closed for a few years, the Austin Ice Cream Festival needed to find a new home.Â Fiesta Gardens fit the bill perfectly.Â While ice cream is really good, it's not going to keep you entertained all day.Â In addition to the cold yummy treats, several local musicians will be performing throughout the day.Â The official lineup for musical entertainment at the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival is:
When you're not too busy chowing down ice cream or listening to music, you may want to join in on one of the fun contests going on at the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival.Â Bring your favorite homemade ice cream to the festival and find out if it's good enough to win "The Spoon".Â Entries are just $20 each.Â For official rules, please visit the Austin Ice Cream Festival's website.Â Make a sculptureÂ using mainly popsicle sticks and bring it in to be judged at the Popsicle Stick Sculpture Contest.Â Last, but certainly not least, you can't have an ice cream festival without an ice cream eating contest.Â For just $10 per person, participantsÂ will beÂ competing against each other AND brain freeze to see who can finish a gallon of ice cream the fastest.
All money raised at the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival will benefit local Austin charities.Â Charities helped in the past include Big Brothers/Big Sisters andÂ the Austin Children's Shelter among others.Â Have fun while you help raise money for some great causes this Saturday, August 17th at the 7th annual Austin Ice Cream Festival.Â Let's all scream for ice cream!
