The thing is, those tasked with planning and organizing the reunion are always looking for ways to make the next big event even more memorable and a bit different from those of the past. The good news is that there are all kind of great fun and festive class reunion activity ideas to bring new life to the next milestone class get-together. Let’s take a look at just a few favorites.
Easy to plan, having an optional golf tournament works really well as a Saturday morning event during a full reunion weekend. The best part is that local area golf courses are usually very experienced in handling the organization of the tourney and adding a tasty lunchtime meal to complete the deal. This relieves reunion planners from having one more thing to worry about.
Delicious barbeque is not only affordable, but everyone will enjoy that casual atmosphere tailgating and barbequing creates. Perfect for a Friday night of an action-packed class reunion weekend, this is an enjoyable way to slow down and include the alma matter’s school game with something folks from all walks of life can appreciate-down-home food and great conversation!
Trivia & Game Night
Really popular at group events these days, having creative trivia or fun games planned is ideal to complement any reunion weekend event. Try a theme for the trivia or games that ties back to the classes’ era in history. Very versatile, games are something that can be organized to provide a whole evening’s entertainment or just to break the ice-planner’s choice, of course.
Reunite The Class Band
Everyone loves music. Did your class have its own music group among the ranks? If so, for one part of the reunion weekend, why not encourage the band to reunite for their very own special one-stop reunion tour? It’ll be fun for all as the alumni reminisce their favorite songs from their school years. Naturally, if this isn’t an option, hiring a live band that fits the bill is always a bit more festive than having piped-in music.
Partake In Local Tours Or Events
Especially for class reunions whose attendees have been-let’s say-away from school for quite some time, planning a couple of day trips to community area landmarks, tours, or favorite events will certainly be appreciated by all. As time passes, folks tend to spread further and further around the nation and the world. Many times, they just don’t get back to their old stomping grounds often or at all. Thus, including a few local tourist activities will bring back many memories of the good old hometown.
Sure, the traditional reunion weekend schedule of events-perhaps the social mixer Friday and formal dinner Saturday-is always a trusty standby. But why not add another day or fill in the gaps with creative and fun activities that really allow plenty of socializing and catching up to take place? And just one more thing-don’t forget to include a fun and festive memento (like these custom imprinted sandals) to help classmates cherish the big weekend as the year goes on.
