4th-july-2015-41 Trivia Question: How many kids can you get on a water slide at one time?

Answer: Don’t ask…!!

Thank you to the 24 Volunteers [including 3 volunteers from Schlumberger Oil Field Services] and the 150-175 kids, parents, grandparents, friends who made the Cranfills Gap Chamber of Commerce FIRST ANNUAL 4th of July Kids Fun Day a success.

Face Painting and Make Your Own Bracelet kept creative artists busy all day as kids, moms, dads, and the young-at-heart submitted themselves as the canvas to be transformed.

The featured giant Water Slide had a real workout, as did the Obstacle Course. Bobbing for apples was another major success with 28 kids [one at a time, of course] going head first to snag an apple bigger than they were. The Fire Truck Bath, Kiddy Pools, and Water Balloon Toss-Turned-Throw were second to none.

Can’t say enough about the featured Giant hot dogs [with chips, snacks, drinks] and snow cones. 120 hot dogs and 100 snow cones disappeared throughout the day.

Another success was the Farmers Market with baked goods and fresh garden vegetables flying off the tables! Talk has been circulating about bringing this back for other dates/venues. What do you think?
