This Sunday, August 19th at Fiesta Gardens, the second annual FunFunFun Fest Aqua Olympics will take the city by storm. This is just one of the many ways in which Fx3 sets itself apart from other Austin festivals. It isn't just a one weekend event where you stand in a field and watch some bros jam out on their guitars, it's a community happening. Not only that but the Aqua Olympics is a chance for people to win tickets to the festivals, PIP passes and to experience the wonders of the taco cannon, which is also my favorite, new euphemism for a penis. As in, "Hey baby, check out this taco cannon..."
If you're interested in taking part in this year's Aqua Olympics you can pre-register on the Fx3 site or you can show-up to Fiesta Gardens at 4pm on Sunday and register in real life. Here's the schedule of events:
- 4pm: Opening Ceremonies & Registration
