Aug. 20, 2010 - PRLog -- This is the time of the year that people think about parties and celebrations, not just for fun but also as a charity event. The idea of a Christmas carnival is exciting this time of year, especially if you live where it is warm, and you can gather outdoors. That doesn’t mean that you have to be outdoors by any means, nor does it mean that a carnival has to include rides. Most people do think of it in terms of rides and games, but the Christmas carnival can take any shape and form that you want for it to take. The important thing is to make it a fun time for everyone and plan it so that it serves it purpose. If you are going to have a Christmas carnival with rides, make certain that the area you choose is large enough. Even if you have too utilize the indoors, if your area is large enough, you can fit in a couple of rides for the kids such as a Carousel and a few other small rides. In most cases, there is plenty of room for games. You do want to keep the games simple and definitely on the order of carnival type games rather than casino games since many of the people who will frequent the carnival will be children and their families out for a few hours of Christmas fun.

Since this is a Christmas event rather than the typical summertime carnival event, it may be a good idea to focus your games on a Christmas theme or to make your prizes related to Christmas. For example, instead of throwing balls at ducks or bears as you do at the carnival, why not make it a Santa Claus or a Christmas tree? You may even want to choose a reindeer for the game. It’s means taking the typical carnival and making it into one focusing on a Christmas theme instead of a summertime fun theme. It may take some ingenuity, but if everyone who is helping organize the Christmas carnival joins in the planning phase, it will not be difficult to create an atmosphere that cries out of Christmas and the winter holidays.

Since you are speaking of a wintertime event, if you live in an area where snow is paramount, your Christmas carnival can definitely include some winter games. Instead of the typical ball throwing contests, why not create a snowball throwing contest? It might even be fun to make it amongst people. Perhaps one of the organizers or volunteers for the event will agree to join in the fun and become the target. Even if you don’t have snow, as long as it’s cold, you can sponsor the event by making balls that are the color of snow or getting some of the synthetic snow that they use on the ski slopes. Of course, that may defeat the purpose of your event by adding to your overhead cost, but if you make some balls out of cotton or string and keep them frozen when they are not in use, you may get some of the effects of snow.

In addition to making money for your organization, a Christmas carnival can help everyone get in the mood for the season. With the fast-paced world in which we live, sometimes people have a difficult time getting into the spirit of the season either because they are too busy or they don’t have the financial means they feel they need to enjoy it. This may be just the kind of thing that will get everyone together so that they can begin to feel the effects of the season and enjoy some fun and games with friends and neighbors at the same time.
