Win Prizes with Wacky Cucalorus Contests!


Add a little funky, friendly competition to your Cucalorus experience!  Before our outdoor screenings of FLASH GORDON and KING KONG – both part of our Dino De Laurentiis Retrospective – these FREE, kid-friendly contests are sure to get the good times rolling and juices flowing. (Or maybe that’s just the drool…)

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 14 • FLASH GORDON • 6 PM • Riverfront Park

Do you have startlingly arched eyebrows and a red bathrobe? Or perhaps a penchant for wearing headbands and particular proficiency with gold spray paint? Then Ming the Merciless or Aura are perfect costumes for you! Dress up for the screening and join us for a Flash Gordon Costume Contest before the film, with first, second and third place prizes provided by downtown vintage dream store A Second Time Around.

6 PM • Flash Gordon Costume Contest

Catch up on your recommended daily potassium intake with our Banana Eating Contest.  Each contestant will have two minutes to eat as many bananas as possible. First, second and third place winners will receive prizes from Tidal Creek Food Co-Op. Come prepared to be simultaneously delighted and disgusted! Wanna kick some banana eating butt?!
