The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co
. (The ABGB) and Friends of Barton Springs Pool (FBSP) will team up on Labor Day (Sept. 7, 10:30 AM) for “The Biggest Pool Jump Ever!” ABGB will cover your admission along with 499 of your old or new or best-est friends, so please join us and ABGB to make the biggest group Barton Springs pool jump ever. Come hold hands with someone you love, or somebody new, and be a part of making Austin history.
The Pool Jump Event is ABGB’s latest “Hell Yes” project to support Friends of Barton Springs Pool and its volunteer’s work to help preserve one of our city’s greatest treasures. To celebrate and shine a light of goodness on Friends of Barton Springs Pool, ABGB will pay the admission of 500 of our friends to jump into Barton Springs Pool in unison and say “Hell Yes” to supporting the FBSP. So, see you there.
Event Details: Labor Day, Monday, September 7
9:30 AM – Meet at the South Entrance at the table and tent hosted by Friends of Barton Springs Pool. Up to 500 participants will receive wristbands good for pool admission and pool jump participation on a first-come basis.
10:30 AM- All wristbanded Jumper participants will enter the South side entrance, and with guidance from pool staff, will walk down to the pool deck, line up, and get ready to jump under instruction from pool lifeguards.
10:45 AM- Jumpers will say “Hell Yes!” and take the plunge into the beautiful 68 degree water!
Friends of Barton Springs Pool will also be hosting a raffle with amazing prizes from local businesses. They’ll be ready to extend invitations and signups to everyone to join them in their first Thursday of the month pool clean ups (and hey, the next one is September 3!). Then, everybody is invited to join us at the ABGB later that afternoon for our 2nd Anniversary Party beginning at noon. Every Jumper’s wristband can be redeemed for a “Special Prize” at the party. Hell Yes!
THE HELL YES PROJECTS The idea behind the Hell Yes Projects is to prove out our philosophy that beer has the power to make everything better. Sharing times with friends. A fresh, hot slice of pizza. Seeing a great band. And, of course, after a nice dip in the pool and some time on the hill, getting something cold to drink at The ABGB. Hell yes, beer makes all of these things better. But we also believe that beer has the power to make our entire community better. Let’s harness beer’s innate goodness and put it into action improving our neighborhood and city and enriching the lives of lots of folks. So Hell Yes to Barton Springs Pool. And Hell Yes to all the organizations and people who work to preserve one of the best things about our city. And pretty much, planet Earth, too. #hellyes #beermakesitbetter #swimsafestaysober
