Come one, come all! The 11th annual Carnival O’ Pizza is back for an afternoon of pizza-themed fun that’s bigger and better than before!
A celebration of Home Slice’s love for all things pizza, this year’s carnival will take place on Saturday, September 24 from noon to 7 p.m. at the iconic South Congress location. Our free family-friendly event will have over-the-top pizza-themed activities and exciting prizes, with all proceeds to benefit this year’s non-profit recipient: Austin Bat Cave!
Join in on the fun with carnival-inspired games, dancing, a photo booth and raffles to win one of 60 prizes, including a YETI Die Hard Pack, two Sound on Sound Fest Festival passes, and even the chance for one lucky raffle winner to be the only person in the world who can make a reservation at Home Slice for the next year!
The 2016 Carnival-O-Pizza promises fun for all ages with:
– Kid themed games and booths, including our own invention: Pee Wee Pizzaioli
– Size and speed dough throwing contests. Home Slice pizza pounders line up against the best from Southside Flying Pizza and Little Deli & Pizzeria to claim their place at the top of the dough ball. Guest judge and international pizza throwing superstar, Michael Shepherd will be sure to keep everyone honest
– A huge raffle featuring amazing prizes from business all over South Congress and Austin
– Entertainment including music, fortune tellers, dancers, mustache painting, hairstyling and more
