California Parks Embrace Whacky Forms of Entertainment
So much for a quiet camping trip this summer – campgrounds across California are way too entertaining for that.
Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (CalARVC), says more and more campsites are now offering quirky activities for visitors, according to a news release
For example, Campland By The Bay in San Diego hosts "American Idol"-style singing competitions for campers, while El Capitan near Santa Barbara features Saturday night concerts by pro musicians.
Meanwhile, Redwoods River Resort & Campground in Leggett, Calif., plans to hold a chocolate pie-eating contest, a canoe race in their pooland a water balloon war over the summer.
San Francisco North/Petaluma KOA will be having an ugly bridesmaid dress contest and a prom flashback dance, complete with a tacky tuxedo contest for men.
Sipe says other wacky forms of campsite entertainment include a park with a mechanical bull, costume pet parades, and cardboard boat races.
