Pool jump event held at Barton Springs Pool

It was a nice day for a pool jump at the Barton Springs Pool. The event was part of Austin Beer Garden Brewing's Hell Yes project.

Nearly 500 people took the plunge in what was billed as the biggest Barton Springs Pool jump ever.

Organizers say this was just one of many ways to show support for Barton Springs Pool and its volunteers to help preserve one of Austin's greatest treasures.

After the dip, swimmers got to enjoy some pizza, beer and live entertainment.
