Home Slice Carnival O’ Pizza 2014


Another afternoon of pizza-themed zaniness in South Austin is right around the corner! Home Slice Pizza’s annual, outdoor Carnival O’ Pizza – postponed from its original date due to weather – is coming up on Saturday, December 13, 2014, from 12-7 p.m. 

The carnival is at once a celebration of the art of hand tossed pizza, a belated 9th birthday party for the restaurant, and a charitable endeavor. This year’s non-profit recipient is Austin Bat Cave.

    • Carnival-style games 
    • Kid themed offerings, including Pee Wee Pizzoli
