Win it in a minute: Umpqua’s goofy games
Children and teens can get their silly on during Umpqua Bank’s Minute to Win It games.
Staff from North Bend’s Umpqua Bank (formerly Sterling Savings) will be presenting the Minute to Win It games at 4 p.m., Saturday at the community stage. Children ages 6 to 12 are welcome to compete in a variety of games including the balloon relay, hula hoop pass, Face the Cookie, or Junk in the Trunk.
In the hula hoop pass, teams race to see who can pass a hula hoop in a circle without using your hands. In the balloon relay, four player race to inflate, tie, pass and pop balloons. In the game Face the Cookie, players are challenged to use only their face muscles to move a cookie from their forehead to their mouth. In the final game, Junk in the Trunk, players will jump and twist until all the jingle bells leap out of the tissue box tied behind them. Another classic is a game in which children race and balance a lemon on a spoon.
This year, children will compete in different age groups, ensuring younger children have a chance to win.
Umpqua will also be serving Sno Falls Brewery root beer from noon to 7 p.m.
Also, at the bank’s booth from 1 to 3 p.m., children can paint free piggy banks to take home and fill with money. If children bring their completed piggy banks filled with money into the bank and open a free savings account, they will receive a prize.
