High Flying Tricks At Trick Olympics - June 14th @ 7pm

Amy’s Ice Cream’s Trick Olympics is back again for its 12th year of high flying, in your face, crowd pleasing ice cream action!

This event brings tricksters or ice cream acrobats from each of our 14 stores who compete against each other to claim the title of Best Trickster. Be sure to arrive early to get the best seats because this year is fixin to be bigger and better!

Here’s what you can expect to see at Trick Olympics!  There will be three events for scoops to compete in. Here is a breakdown on each event:

Solo Trick: 

Competitors spend hours perfecting a string of tricks to pump up the audience. Judges are not only looking for form and difficulty of the trick but looking at how, YOU the audience is reacting to those jaw dropping acrobatics. Tricksters get three chances to successfully complete their trick,  the amphitheater fills with anticipation, hearts guaranteed to stop for just a moment, BOOM! Landed it and the crowd goes wild!

Group Trick:

A team working together to bring a well thought out performance to the Olympics. These crafty competitors are expected to choreograph a moment and judges are looking at their chemistry not only each other but the audience as well. Expect to see skits performed, in previous years some of our most notable have been The Monty Python, Pee Wee Herman and even The Time Warp.

Trick Decathlon:

Decathlon is where the stakes are raised, the egos are high and the tricksters decide their fate. Our acrobats are given 10 tricks to complete in a race against each other. Combination of skill and speed sends ice cream flying through the air, first trickster to win their heat gets pushed into the lightning round, an old fashioned game of Horse!

Each event will send chills up your spine and smiles from ear to ear. The judges are paying close attention to crowd hype so be sure to cheer on your favorite trickster!

 

Ice Cream + More:

The wonderful crew at The Southpark Meadows location will be slinging cream, providing you with theatrics behind the counter.  The Amy’s Ice Creams Catering team will be outside to provide you with ice cream, cold beverages and bottles of water and we will have our bakery Baked by Amy’s join us! Baked will be selling their famous shortbread cookies.

Each year we put on Trick Olympics to help support CASA of Travis County, a non profit organization that supports and promotes court appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive. Amy’s will donate 20% of the days sales to this fantastic cause. Those who donate at a CASA booth will be entered into a raffle to win $500 dollars worth of swag to your favorite Austin businesses.
