October 1st is OcTABerfest at the Ronald McDonald House

The Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Ohio's annual OcTABerfest will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2011 from 10am-4pm at Owens Community College.

This event is FREE to everyone, and Ronald McDonald will be there! There will be activities for the kids which include an inflatable bouncer, face painting and a junior Pull-A-Mac. There will also be a car and truck show with registration beginning at 9am. The first 200 entries will receive dash plaques. They will also have door prizes. This is also the perfect time to turn in all of those can pull tabs you have been collecting.

New for this year is the Pull-A-Mac tournament. This is a "bracket style" tug-of-war tournament between teams pulling a 20 ton semi! Each team is allowed 10 members. RMH did a "practice" pull at Southview High School earlier this year. I went along to photograph for promotional pictures and witnessed a 3 man team pull the semi. It can be done! This event will be MC'd by WTVG's Dave Holmes with the winning team receiving a trophy and the respect of everyone watching! Don't miss this fun event and help support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio!

Kurt's Kustom Keepsakes Green Screen Photo Booth

Looking for fun ways to keep your guests entertained at your wedding, fundraiser,office party or other event? Are you hosting a Halloween or Christmas Party and searching for ideas to make your party stand out from the crowd? Have I got just the right thing for you! Kurt's Kustom Keepsakes is an open air photo booth that uses digital technology similar to that which movie and television show makers use to create digital characters and backgrounds. A similar photo booth was at a recent Hollywood Emmy party and was a huge hit!

You choose the background(s) before your event. Then, while at your event, we take pictures of your guests in front of a green screen. Then, with Hollywood style GSI magic, we create an image of your guests in the background picture you chose. This is a fun and exciting way for your guests to enjoy your gathering, and can even take home a copy of the photo for a souvenir! We can also make a scrapbook from the photo booth images for the guests to sign! Check out my Kurt's Kustom Keepsakes website for more information, images from past events and pricing details. You might even see a real Hollywood celebrity or two!
