Happy National Grandparents Day to everyone. We attended a National Grandparents Day festival with various outdoor entertainment options to enjoy.
Everyone was respectful of keeping distance and wearing masks. We had an opportunity to pant face masks. We were provided different types of facemasks, paintbrushes, and many colors of paint. I love being creative with paints. It was a challenge to decide what to paint. At first, I was going to paint a mouth and nose, thinking it was funny but then I thought it might look scary, which could come in handy around Halloween.
Inflatable Games Stations
There were four inflatable game stations. One was shooting basketball in a hoop. The second one had vertical holes on a sheet where you through balls in. Next was throwing balls at floating balls. This was a challenge because the floating balls were moving and harder to connect and knock down. The fourth game was swinging a bat at a floating ball.
Yum. Snow cones on a warm day are a cool relief. We choose from cherry and bubble gum. People were creative with their snow cones and combined the flavors to have different layers with different colors. I got my snow cone in a cup and glad I did as the kids that got it in a cone would drop theirs immediately. I felt safer with a cup.
Can’t go wrong with a great hot dog. You had condiment choices of onions, relish, ketchup, and mustard. It was nice to sit in the grass, relax, and enjoy the delicious hot dog.
Popcorn, popcorn for everyone. I like to smell and taste of freshly made popcorn. There was a popcorn maker and they make the popcorn right in front of us. Then they shared the popcorn in large cups. This was a smart as many kids would run around and not drop as much.
For those with a great underhand or overhand pitch, this is your game. It was a warm day, so the person in the tank wanted people to hit the spot that would dunk him. It is fun to watch people who think they can pitch and miss. We did cheer loudly for those kids that were successful in dunking.
Celebrating National Grandparents Day
It was a nice day to be outside and celebrate grandparents. What is your favorite festival game?
We played with hula hoops on National Watermelon Day last year.
