What better excuse to let your hair down and have some FUN than Street Feast day. Through the years we’ve seen people get up to all sorts of silliness from water fights to three-legged races.. and we’re not just talking about the kids. Here are some ways to break the ice & let loose at your neighbourhood lunch.
We reckon most people are looking for an excuse to dress up in ridiculous clothes and prance around sipping cups of tea. Get the glad rags out for your neighbourhood lunch. Set a theme- superheroes? Mad hatters tea party? Have competitions for the best dressed or silliest costume.
Get out on the green and show the neighbours your best moves! Nothing says letting loose than dancing. All you need are some speakers (or better yet a local band..) a great playlist and bit of space and you’ve got yourself the perfect dance party.
Tug of War
There’s no better way to break the ice than introducing a bit of friendly competition. The teams can be split however you fancy- one side of the street against the other ? Or perhaps the new neighbours against the old. Any which way, the game is sure to end in muddy bums and hysterical laughter.
Egg & Spoon Race
Oh the fun you can have with a few spoons & half a dozen eggs. The more the merrier for this game. Add different obstacles to the race – get people to run around cones, blindfolded or backwards. There’s always the one person who brings a fake egg so keep those eyes peeled (..yes that pun was very much intended).
Here at Street Feast, we fully endorse play! Wether you’re young or old, play can encourage us to be creative & delve into the world of our imagination.
