Memorial Day celebrations with flair and sweet flavors
The neighborhood Memorial Day celebrations include a pie-eating contest, a potato sack race and the ever-popular tug-of-war. These Memorial Day parties are a favorite of James and the kids, who love friendly competition, and of course, the chance to win holiday candy! Red white and blue candy is always a hit on Memorial Day, so many of the prizes feature yummy flavors like Berry Blue, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Coconut, Blueberry and Sour Cherry. Prizes for these Memorial Day celebrations often feature one or two of these flavors contained in personalized tins easily ordered from MyJellyBelly.com
Starting off the Memorial Day celebrations is the potato sack race. More than other Memorial Day celebrations, Addi enjoys this event the most. With holiday candy waiting for the winners, all the children (and adults) eagerly jump to the finish line to claim their jelly bean prizes. At these Memorial Day parties, the main event is the tug-of-war. For this Memorial Day party tradition, the Smith family parades to their respective sides — boys against girls, and as the neighborhood girls always out-number the boys, Tristene and Addi celebrate their win with the others with Heart Shape Tins featuring a fun image of Mr. Jelly Belly ® waving the American flag.
Now the Memorial Day celebration food contests begin, starting with the pie eating contest — Jace's favorite. Almost as good as holiday candy, Jace and his friends dig in to cherry, blackberry and strawberry pies, getting the dark fruit all over their smiling faces. Memorial Day celebrations in this cul-de-sac result in lots of cleanup, but no one cares, especially when a special jelly bean prize goes to the winner of this contest. The king of jelly beans treats — a Barrel full of about 250 sweet Jelly Belly jelly beans goes to the pie-eating contest winner.
After the Memorial Day celebrations are done for the weekend, the Smiths head home with their Jelly Belly jean beans prizes in tow. All of the Memorial Day parties are now happy memories, full of fun holiday candy prizes that were easily ordered online from MyJellyBelly.com
. More summer celebrations are ahead, and the family is already planning fun things to do when Addi and Jace are out of school. Waiting another year for Memorial Day parades and parties isn't such a bad thing for Jace who savors his Barrel full of 250 Jelly Belly jelly beans.
