Last Sunday, September 15, 2019, Smiling Springs Orthodontics participated in the Fall Festival. This was an event in downtown Colorado Springs at Acacia Park. I gotta say, we had an awesome time! We teamed up with “Made for More Project”, who is a nonprofit organization, to be apart of this event. This is the second annual Fall Festival.
Christina and Ashley spent some time preparing for the event by making the pumpkin bean bag toss game (pictured below). We put a lot of work into it. We cut it out into the shape of the pumpkin and painted several coats of orange. We put our own twist on it by adding braces to him. It was an awesome opportunity for some team building.
The game was, having to make 2 out of 3 bean bags into either the eyes or the mouth and we were giving out prizes to the winners. We had lines of kids but also parents wanting to play. We really enjoyed watching the smiles on the kids faces when they were tossing the bean bags through the pumpkins eyes and mouth. It was an awesome turn out. The fall festival included live music, food trucks, face painting and pumpkin painting. We were so happy to be apart of this community event.
