As part of Pullen Park's pop-out winter programing, a Candy Cane Games day will be held at Pullen Park. An assortment of carnival games will be available to play for program registrants, and we need help running the games! The rules are simple; just step right up and we'll tell you everything you need to know!
Assist with carrying/wheeling various carnival games and minimal setup/breakdown of games. Volunteers may be asked to team lift games weighing up to 110lbs. Volunteers will each be assigned a carnival game to run. Volunteers will be responsible for engaging the guests, explaining the game rules to guests, monitoring guest play for safe behavior, and ensuring that no pieces of game equipment are broken or lost. Strong communication and guest interaction skills are required.
By volunteering to run a carnival game, you are helping provide winter programing to local families in our communities. Please help us spread some holiday joy this season!
Work will occur outdoors with approximately 200 participants attending the outdoor program between 2pm - 6pm. Volunteers will be asked to push or carry pieces of carnival game equipment. The largest piece of equipment that volunteers might be asked to team lift is 110lbs. Restrooms are available on-site.
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. All volunteers must complete a release form. Those under 18 years of age will need a parent/guardian signature.
