If you are holding a Long Beach company picnic, you may be wondering what types of elements you can add to the picnic to make the day fun and entertaining for all who attend. Let’s face it, you need to have some fun events at your picnic, otherwise no one will want to stay. There are a variety of ways that you can add fun elements without going overboard. Consider the following reasons and put them into motion for your next corporate picnic.
1. Water Balloons
If it is going to be a hot day, consider having a water balloon fight between everyone. You can have the groups split up by divisions in the company or however you see fit. The water balloons will be enjoyable for kids and help transport adults back to their early years.
2. Fireworks
Another element that can make a picnic fun is fireworks. Of course, you would need to have a late evening picnic, but everyone will appreciate sitting back and watching the beautiful colors in the sky. Even if you do not want to have big, exploding fireworks, sparklers are a great touch to end the day.
3. Face Painting and Games
If you know there will be a lot of children at the picnic, you can add elements such as face painting and games for the entire family. To add a small twist on the event, consider having prizes for the families who do the best during the games. Everything from a hot dog eating contest to a three-legged race will work and the entire crew will have fun while getting involved.
4. Dancing
Another fun element to any picnic is dancing. Depending on the theme you are having, you can choose to have a dancing competition from a country line dance to a fun 90s dance. Whatever you choose, make sure you have a small prize for the winner to help encourage everyone to participate.
5. S’mores
Who doesn’t love a good ole s’more? If you want to entertain everyone at the picnic from the adults to the children, a large open fire to roast marshmallows and make s’mores is the way to go. Everyone will enjoy being able to get in on the fun and watch as their marshmallow turns from soft to a slight crunch.
When you are trying to plan your picnic, don’t forget to include some fun elements to keep everyone entertained and to ensure that everyone has a good time while there. If you need help planning the event, you will want to contact your local event planner to help you with the decorations, theme, food estimates, and more. Your company picnic will be a great success and hit.
