Bring a little piece of Holiday World home with you

My kids look forward to our summer outing to Holiday World every year. The roller coasters, the water slides, and of course, the souvenirs. Our last stop out of the park each trip is the gift shop, where they each choose one small item to remember their trip by. We’ve brought home t-shirts, keychains, snowglobes. Wouldn’t they flip if we brought home a bumper boat?!

Head to Holiday World this Saturday, November 21 and not one, but two bumper boats could be yours as the amusement park hosts an auction to shed some of its surplus items. If bumper boats are not your style, perhaps you could use tools or lighting equipment. I’m tempted by the announcement that there is “lots of Christmas garland and decorations” on the auction block — the place used to be called Santa Claus Land, so I’m seeing vintage Christmas in my mind.

For a more complete list of items to be auctioned, including commercial restaurant equipment, click here.

The bidding gets underway at 10am CST at the park’s Lakeside Shelter House, just off the main parking lot.

CelebrationLogoWhile you’re in town, stick around for the Santa Claus Christmas Celebration. Drive the 1.2 mile-long “Santa Claus Land of Lights,” do a little shopping at the Santa Claus Christmas Store, and take part in gingerbread making or fruitcake eating festitivities!
