Last Saturday, Fun Fun Fun Fest held its third annual Aqua Olympics at Fiesta Gardens. This free event featured beer, food, field-day style competitive games, awesome prizes, and the announcement of the eighth annual Fun Fun Fun Fest Comedy and Skate + Ride lineups.
DJ Flying Turns and MCs Doug Mellard, Mike Wieve, and Chris Cubas kept the vibes coming as hundreds of people participated in the Aqua Olympics. Water competitions included the Paddleboard Joust, Paddleboard Freestyle Competition, Paddleboard Relay, “Revenge of the Nerds” Belching Contest, and a Celebrity Tug of War between the Texas Rollergirls and the Austin Facial Hair Club. Land games consisted of a Skate + Bike Demo, Potato Sack Race, “Egg” in Spoon Race, Balloon Toss, 6-Legged Race, and even a Taco Cannon Launch at the end of the event. The participants that were winners in their events won prizes such as Fun Fun Fun Fest passes (3-day passes, Ultimate Smooth passes, and single-day passes), tickets to upcoming Transmission Events shows, vintage Fun Fun Fun Fest merchandise, and more.
The exciting announcement of the FFF8 Comedy lineup includes performances by Tenacious D, Patton Oswwalt, Craig Robinson from “The Office”, and Rob Delaney, and even a live version of the Eric André Show. There will also be appearances by Kyle Kinane, New York comedian/writer Hari Kondablo, and Kyle Dunnigan (Professor Blastoff), Jonah Ray, as well as the Altercation Punk Rock Comedy Hour, the New Movement Sketch Comedy Troupe, Air Sex Championship, Anarchy Championship Wrestling, and Veggie Hot Dog Eating Contest.
Thrilled to partner again with local nonprofit Project LOOP, Fun Fun Fun Fest will present a vert ramp, half-pipe and street course for an entertaining Skate + Ride experience at the festival. Renowned athlete Christian Hosol will join the other athletes on the ramp; and X Games winner Elliot Sloan, Lester Kasal, Sergie Ventura, and Pierre Luc Gagnon will be riding vert demos. Cody Lockwood, Steve Reeves, and Texas’s own Raney Beres will be riding at the festival, alongside many others.
The festival also announced that its Ultimate Smooth pass is on sale now, a new version of its VIP pass. Three-day passes are also currently on sale, and single-day tickets go on sale September 5th.
The eighth annual Fun Fun Fun Fest will commence November 8-10 at Auditorium Shores. The festival’s full lineup can be accessed here, and ticket information and purchasing can be accessed here.
