A dance contest is a great way to get all of those greasers and beauty school dropouts into the swing of things! Don’t forget about “The Twist,” “The Mashed Potato,” and “The Bop” to make sure they rock around the clock tonight!
Pull out the pink bubble gum and have a bubble-blowing contest!

Play “Name That Tune” using old 50’s songs – extra points are given to the team that can name the title and the artist. Reward the winner with a Rock Around the Clock Cola Glass filled with candy.
Have a car hop relay. Divide your group into two teams. Give each team a tray with french-fries, a hamburger, a bottle of Coca-Cola, and an ice cream sundae. Each guest must run down to a car window, touch the car, and run back – all without spilling any food. Once they are back, they hand the tray to the next person and so on. The first team to complete the “car hop” wins!
Set up a drive-in movie theater in your back yard and watch Grease under the stars!
Set up a great photo opportunity with a 1950’s Car Standee or 50’s Photo Stand-In. Don’t forget to personalize the license plate for added memories.
Use a Rock n’ Roll Game for an easy activity. Guests attach records with 50’s celebrities names on them to their backs and ask other guests questions to figure out what name is on their back.
