Are you familiar with our newly coined term, the HoliSmile?

Holiday World's 2014 brochure cover

If you look at our Holiday World logo here on our brochure, you’ll see we took the rainbow from the design and turned it upside down – into a smile.

And then we put that smile on a stick.

… and we called it a HoliSmile.

We hope to make lots of folks smile their very own HoliSmile with this new contest.

We’re calling it: Show us your #HoliSmile!

In a nutshell, we’d like you to make a HoliSmile, take your photo with it, and send it to us. We’ll post all those HoliSmile photos on our Facebook page (in a HoliSmile album) and at the end of a week, the photo with the most “shares” wins a prize.

And we’ll have four winners:

Grand Prize: Four one-day tickets to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari for 2014, plus two nights in a King Size Rental RV at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort (RV must be used during July, 2014; Sundays through Thursdays only; must be at least 21 years old to make reservation).

First Runner Up: Two one-day tickets to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari plus a $50 HoliCash gift card

Second Runner Up: $50 HoliCash gift card

Third Runner Up: $25 HoliCash gift card

We’re even handing out HoliSmiles in the park this summer!

Isn’t she adorable?

You’re welcome to make your own HoliSmile. Or, you can download a HoliSmile already colored in for you. Or download a line-art version and color it in yourself. We’re not fussy – we just want to see you smile!

Even Holidog has a HoliSmile (and has free HoliSmiles to hand out at his shows).

We even have edible HoliSmiles! Our HoliSmile Krispie Pops are available with all the other sweet treats in Mrs. Klaus’ Kitchen.
