So what do you do when you're a lifeguard and the water park is closed for the season?
You look for other ways to make yourself invaluable.
And what might be a valuable skill to have for our upcoming Happy Halloween Weekends?
Face-painting, of course!
The gentleman in the above photo is Gary Cole from a company called Snazaroo. (Although he shares the name with a famous actor, our face-painting teacher didn't look at all like the actor who creeped me out so badly in Fatal Vision that I didn't sleep through the night for weeks. He looks more like Tony Randall in a Doris Day movie, don't you think?)
Here's Gary at work, demonstrating his craft on Anna:
Anna's sister Mary was next...
... and the youngest of the three sisters, Ellen, was transformed into a beautiful, bejeweled butterfly.
Next, their daddy stepped up to the brush. (With great face paint comes great ... um, photogenicability?)
Here's Katie all pretty in pink ... with her lovely dragon matching her shirt and hair bow.
Our best Face Painting Artists will be on hand throughout Happy Halloween Weekends (at Good Ol' Days Picnic Grove - which we're transforming into Goblin Grove) to paint your favorite little (or big) faces for $4.95 plus tax each. Goblin Grove will also include free activities, such as trick-or-treating and pumpkin painting for those 12 and younger. We'll have a Halloween magic show, too, and much more!
