Since our elementary school opened 60 years ago in 1951, the school carnival was 50’s themed. To compliment the music, game booths, classic cars & food, I asked my girlfriend to organize some friendly 50’s themed competitions for the main stage. With both the kids and parents as participants, I have to say, these competitions were my favorite part of the entire day.
1. Hula Hooping – Prize for the longest and for the most creative hula hooping.
2. “Sock Hop” – Put a sock on one foot and see who can hop the longest.
3. “Diner Dash” – Timed race carrying a tray full of “diner food” with one hand.
4. Bubble Gum Blowing – Prize for the quickest bubble (all starting at the same time) and for the biggest bubble.
