The Poke Sallet Festival Steering Committee is excited to announce that Kidbuck$ Game Show is coming to the 64th annual Poke Sallet Festival. The show will be located at Huff Park. Show times will be announced closer to the festival, which will take place June 6-8.
This show heaps up a laugh a minute and keeps the large crowds it attracts pumped up and participating. Young or old, every one loves the show! An ever-changing cast of randomly selected contests keeps the show new and exciting. The kids are the stars of this show! This is the show that people will talk about and come back to see time and time again!
A thrilling game show in which randomly selected members of the audience, participate in wild and crazy games, the final winner enters the Kidbuck$ chamber and grabs as many “Kidbucks” swirling around as possible. Catch the fun, excitement and prizes! If you would like to be a contestant on the show, you must arrive 5 – 10 minutes prior to show time and be between the ages of 3 – 15 years old to be eligible! You could be the big winner!
HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED:
Nine contestants between the ages of three and fifteen are chosen from the audience by a raffle system. The contestants are divided into three groups based on their size and physical ability. Each group of three contestants plays wild and crazy games to determine a winner. The winner of each moves into the winners’ circle to await the final round and the runners-up all receive a prize.
When all three semi finalists have been determined, the final round is played. In this round the semifinalists “spin to win” on the winners wheel. Age and size give no one an advantage. Only lady luck knows who will win this round! The one who spins the highest number is the grand champion and enters the money chamber where they have 30 seconds to grab as many Kidbuck$ as they can as they swirl about the chamber. The Kidbuck$ are redeemed for prizes based on the number of bucks collected. Additionally at the end of the show, one more ball from the raffle machine is drawn and the person that is holding that ticket wins a prize as well.
