The next opportunity for you to punch the monkey is at the Summer Kickoff Party on Saturday, June 2rd at AirU. That's the fun for the family trampoline palace at 5461 McKenna Square.

The Summer Kickoff Party will mark the official start of summer, at least by our authority.  You're invited and tickets are only $5 per person. With your ticket, you get loads of jump time at AirU, live music, and lifestyle vendors.

Another huge component of The Summer Kickoff Party is the bringing together of some of Amarillo's finest food trucks in one location. For one day you don't have to run all over town to catch the trucks.  At The Summer Kickoff Party, the trucks are coming to you.
