28 Aug Throw THE LABOR DAY BASH Everyone Talks About
It’s nice to have friends and family over to hang out at your swimming pool but make this year the year that your LABOR DAY BASH is a BLAST and has everyone you know buzzing about it for the rest of the year! There are a lot of great blog posts about party food, party beverages, and party themes, but you’re going to stand out from the rest with interactive games that will have your guests laughing, cheering, and raving.
Swimming Pool Games
There are all kinds of games that kids like to play that don’t require props. But, this is Labor Day – the celebration of the end of summer, take your party to the next level with games that use more than the imagination.
Floating Beer Pong
(aka “Go Pong” by the company selling the option featured)
While it may be counter to the name, your beer pong game cups can have anything you’d like in them, from lemonade to soda to wine to beer to whiskey. So, whether it’s a family-focused event or an adults-only experience, everyone can enjoy this fun game requiring some hand-eye coordination. But, assuming this is going to be a highlight for your party, you’ll need to snag extra solo cups. It would be a sad and major party foul to run out.
If you’ve got an athletic, competitive group of folks coming, you may want to be prepared with the opportunity to play some serious water sports in the form of water volleyball. Not that athleticism is required to have fun, but at Crystal Clear Pools and Spas, we’ve noticed that hard core competitors LOVE playing water volleyball.
Giant Ring Toss
This throwback game to childhood will be fun for all ages. It’s another excuse to play in the water, it’s colorful, it’s playful, and it’s great fun.
Some people opt out of donning a swimsuit and jumping into the pool. So, it’s always great to have fun ideas to engage those folks who’d rather stay dry poolside.
Giant Connect Four
Connect four is another game that’s fun for kids and nostalgic for adults. And, there’s something about the sheer size of it that looks very cool!
Stars and Stripes Cornhole Game
Take your patriotism and your party to the next level with this party hit! You determine placement of the boards so it can be as easy or as challenging as you’d like.
Jenga is a hit wherever it’s played. Bring this fun, challenging game outdoors with the rest of the party. It’s sure to draw a crowd as the game goes on and the difficulty increases.
Before You Party
Your bash will quickly turn into a bust if you don’t plan ahead and make sure all pool systems are a GO! before the big day. If you don’t already have a pool company headed over to ensure the readiness of your equipment and chemicals, call Crystal Clear Pools and Spas right away at (512) 339-9304. Avoid Murphy’s Law of last minute needed cleaning and repairs by having your pool cleaned and checked out by the experts.
About Labor Day
While it’s a fun day and a celebration, we want to take a moment to consider how and why Labor Day became a staple in our lives. According to Wikipedia, Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer in the United States. The holiday is also a federal holiday.
Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor. “Labor Day” was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, which organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S. states officially celebrated Labor Day.
