WHAT IS CAKE WALK?
The Cake Walk is a 70+ year tradition in Grandview Heights and currently serves as a major fundraising event for the GH Band Parents Association. For more details on the history of Cake Walk in Grandview Heights, please click here.
After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Band Parents are excited to announce the return of a live and in person Cake Walk Event. Here are the particulars:
The premise is simple: you purchase a ticket for a chance to walk in a "cake circle" (a circle of chairs, each with a number on it), with a bunch of other people while the GH Bands play music. When the music stops, everyone sits down on a chair. The master of ceremonies draws a number out of a random number hopper and announces it, and the person sitting in the chair with that number wins a cake - huzzah! It's that simple, but it happens over and over again all night long, until all the cakes are gone.
WHO COMES TO THE CAKE WALK?
The event is open to the public - please help us spread the word and invite your friends and neighbors. (There is a nominal $1 entrance fee per person.)
IS THERE A CAKE DECORATING CONTESt?
You bet there is! Prizes will be awarded in three categories: Most Bobcat Spirit, Most Creative, and Most Musical, and in two divisions, adult and student.
To enter, simply drop off your cakes at the OLD Larson middle school commons any time after 3pm on April 8 - please be sure to indicate on the box or carrier that your cake is intended for the cake decorating contest, and identify whether the artist is an adult or a student.
