2012 Turkey Bowl
November 20, 2012 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Fountain Square starts Thanksgiving early with yet another wacky event! We bowl frozen turkeys on the Fountain Square ice rink, because it’s silly and fun and supports a good cause.
The person who knocks down the most bowling pins in three throws will win $50 cash, a DVD of the classic “Turkeys Away” episode of WKRP in Cincinnati, and a trophy.
To play, participants must bring two non-perishable food items* or $5 cash to the Fountain Square ice rink. Registration occurs onsite, and opens for contestants at 11AM. Food and cash donations are given to The Freestore Foodbank, located in Over-The-Rhine. Last year, participants donated $130 and 12 bags of food.
*Suggested food items: canned meat products (tuna, chicken, ham, spaghetti with meatballs, chili with meat and beans, beef stew, beans and hot dogs, etc.), peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruits, canned soups, and boxed macaroni and cheese. No glass, please.
