WELL-O-RAMA GAMES
Who can kick their slippers the furthest? Who has the longest beard? Who can win the bragging rights as Well-O-Rama royalty? Games and prizes are additional sponsorship opportunities. We are inviting businesses and community groups to organize teams to compete for the top prizes as an ode to the competitions that occurred in Well-O-Rama festivals of the past. These games occur in between music sets throughout the day. Registration HERE after April 1st!
WELL-O-RAMA HISTORY
The name “Well-O-Rama” comes from a historical event that started in 1968 as a celebration of the completion of Highway 1, and the paving of Cleveland Avenue. The original event included a parade, bike races, sack races, a pie eating contest and a slipper-kicking contest. Arts, crafts, all kinds of food, and antique vehicles were on display, and variety shows included musical acts, street dancing, singing and more. The event expanded over the years to become a three-day festival, including fashion and motorcycle shows, tractor pulls, carnivals, a Miss Well-O-Rama pageant, and a beard-growing contest. It went on for a decade before coming to an end around 1980.
