How to Set up Food Carnival Booths:
Before the carnival, it is best to plan out all booth placement – especially food booth placement. Remember, that most food booths need to be close to an electricity outlet. (Talk to your local health officials to find out specific requirements for your location.) The popcorn carnival booth can easily be set up inside, but consider placing the cotton candy machine outside, close to an outlet, but on a covered portion of the property. The cotton candy machine can make a sticky, sweet mess, but this is one of the kids favorite carnival food booths! Your volunteers will be especially sweet when they are done!!
Our school rents a cotton candy machine every year for our school carnival – the children love it! Our teachers sign up to help with our carnival food booths and the carnival ticket booth. Children love seeing their teachers in a different role and parents enjoy getting to know the teachers in a more casual setting!
Several years ago, our PTA purchased a popcorn machine and we use it annually for every carnival and for other PTA events throughout the year. If your school or church does not have a popcorn cart, consider talking to a local bank that serves popcorn on Fridays. See if they would be willing to loan out their popcorn machine for your carnival and donate some volunteers to help as well. Note: most popcorn carts have wheels, but do have glass sides which are breakable. Use caution when moving this carnival booth item!
