As you can see, pretty much everyone in Sioux Center was at the party. Jon informed me that he was sure every student from his class was there. I love seeing so many of the kids I've gotten to know from volunteering at Kid Zone and at the public school. One of the bonuses of having an indoor party is it is light enough to actually see the kids' faces. Plus, they don't have to wear coats, so you can really see their costumes too.
About two dozen carnival games are spread out all around the gym. The kids play to win tickets. Tickets get traded in for small, medium, and large prizes. Every kid gets a ticket every time they play. The prizes are mainly various sized pieces of candy as well as some small toys. So, you play a few games, you trade your tickets in for some candy, you go play a few more games, get some more candy, etc., eventually leaving with a good sugar buzz.
