Kroger Street Fair – Fun For Everyone

Each week’s theme is different for the Kroger Street Fair.  We host a kids Hula-Hoop Contest and invite the five contestants to center stage to see who can “Twist Again Like We Did Last Summer” the longest while hula hooping! Winner gets a Welborn Floral Kids Gift Basket!  Then we choose five couples from the sponsors or Pre-Unions to enter the Water Balloon Toss Contest.  The winning couple gets a $30 Kroger Gift Card.  Losers get a towel. We all meet at sundown to “Toast the Sunset” as it dips into the Ohio.  Then the nightlife continues.
