Outreach Event Ideas
Celebrate Cinco De Mayo in the typical fashion. Have a fiesta themed night complete with build-your-own nachos. Play latino music. Teach everyone how to salsa, if your denomination allows for it. Then the coup de gras. Play games with pungent things from the Latino food store. One that we played was where you buy 6 things and put each one inside of a brown paper sack. Split everyone into two teams. One person from each team gets blindfolded and one by one, they open each sack and smell it and try to guess what it is. They get one guess per bag. A teammate writes down their guesses. Whoever guesses the most correct wins. The stinkiest thing we were able to find was canned octopus! You could also find a plethora of games to play with things from the Latino store.
