If your organization is planning to host a fall festival, consider making it child-friendly in order to appeal to families.
Offer Festive Foods
For many children, fall foods are part of the fun and good food can usually help attract a crowd. If you’re hosting a fall festival, serve the sweet treats that people love and expect to see. Consider serving apple cider and hot chocolate to warm up guests. Offer other easy-to-eat snacks such as apple slices, candy corn, pumpkin seeds, and sweet potato fries to give guests options.
Plan Party Activities
If you’re entertaining a crowd of children, you are going to need activities to do so. New Joy Farm has a variety of entertaining party rentals including pony rides, bounce houses, and face painting that will keep children occupied and parents happy. Offering a variety of party rental services will impress guests, provide photo opportunities, and leave them with cherished memories.
Set-Up Simple Games
Fall comes with plenty of fun outdoor activities that can be easily set-up for a large festival. If you have a large space to occupy, consider setting up bales of hay (ask local farmers for donations) to create a small maze for children. Offer a table with fall-themed coloring pages and crayons for young children to keep them busy while waiting for a pony ride.
Parents love events that entertain their children, and if the event also educates their children, that’s a big plus! Offer “learning stations” where children can learn about different fall-themed topics such as why the leaves change in the fall, what produce grows best in the fall, the history of scarecrows, and other fun fall topics.
