Last month, Candlelight Cove in Easton, MD held a beach party at their community and it was so much fun, they plan to make it an annual event! They were inspired by our recent tidbit that highlighted a “stay at home” walking tour of Philadelphia and decided to bring the beach to them! The party included games with prizes, a photo corner with a beach backdrop & props, a visit from preschoolers, live beach music, and delicious beach-themed food. The highlight was the dunking tank! Residents took turns throwing balls to dunk Bob Scheele, the Executive Director.
While it might be late for a beach party now that fall is almost here, there are other great themes you can use for an Autumn outdoor party:
- Football tailgating party before watching the game on the big screen. Grill food, have games and prizes, learn cheers (get residents moving!) and make signs to hold up during the game.
- Oktoberfest Party! Bring Germany to you with German music, beer (regular and/or non-alcoholic), German food and dancing.
- Halloween costume parade and trick or treat outside.
- Fall festival with pumping throws, pumpkin painting, scarecrow-making and games & goodies.
Let us know if you hold any fall festivities and send pictures too!
