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.

What a fun way to celebrate National Grandparents Day. I know my dad would love to go to this with my kids. We will have to celebrate when we see them again.

Fun. I have never seen any events for grandparents day where we’ve lived before. Grandparents are such a special part of our families what a great way to celebrate them.
Maybe this is something you can suggest to your local town councel.
What a fun day! I actually really love the idea of mask painting. It just seems like a good way to make this whole situation a little more bearable!
We agree, they would orignially do face painting and due to the current environment updated it to mask painting.
That’s so fun that there was a Grandparents Day festival near you! I love snow cones, so that would be my first go-to!
Which flavor would you have picked for the snow cone?
These are such cute ideas. I cant believe we forgot Grandparents Day this year.
Don’t worry, I trust you can still celebrate it. 🙂
This sounds fun! Dunk tanks are always funny to me.
I always wonder if the water is color or warm in the dunk tank.
It was a good time for all.
This looks like it was a great day to celebrate. I’m sure the whole family loves the games and the memories made.
There were stories that we have started to share over and over again due to some running activites that took place.
Doing things with our grandkids is the best! Sounds like a fun day.
They did a great job with the different activities.
