For the 5th edition of our Kid's Mini Fruitcake Toss we're bringing it back to to where it all began in 2014 and partnering with Manitou Spring's Great Fruitcake Toss in an effort to rid the world of leftover Christmas fruitcakes. We'll be doing it with little wooden catapults- decorated, of course!
It all kicks off with a mini catapult building and decorating workshop at the Manitou Art Center (515 Manitou Ave.) at 10 am on Saturday, January 26th. Kids may drop-in anytime between 10 am to noon to assemble their own FREE mini catapult, we'll provide all the parts and materials to customize it any way they like. Once they're finished they can take their creation across the street to Memorial Hall (inside Manitou's City Hall building) for distance and accuracy contests using official tiny fruitcakes and marshmallows (we'll provide those too!), as well as Best Decorated Catapult. We'll announce all the winners between 12:30 - 1:00 pm, just before the Great Fruitcake Toss festivities begin (1-3 pm). It will be a full day of fruitcake flinging fun!
