Planning Your Own Car Hop

By Ace Winget

There are many fun things to see and do at a car show. One fun activity is to participate in a car hop. While it is important that the cars that are being shown are the main priority, a little fun helps things to go a long way.

To begin with you need to plan out a few things including invitations, costumes, decorations, food, and music. You’ll want to decide if you’ll do this outdoors or indoors, or perhaps both. Summers are a perfect time for having a more authentic car hop, if you choose to use your actual car for this. However, anytime you choose to do your party there are many ways to make it fun.

Publicity is key. Make sure that your event is well know by those who will be attending the event. When people know in advance they are more likely to make sure to set aside time to attend.

Decorations really make a big difference. They can make the difference between a ho hum event and an evening full of pizazz. It can be simple or elaborate, you decide, but whatever you do, do it well.

These can include putting out black and white checkered table clothes. For a center piece add a plastic record in the middle with some mint green and pink balloons. Add some Bazooka bubble gum for an added touch.

Dressing up for occasion also helps people to really get in the spirit of things. Poodle skirts, bobby socks, saddle shoes and chiffon scarves are a fun costumes for women and girls. Cuffed blue jeans, leather jackets, and black sunglasses really add something for guys. Your food can include hamburgers and fries in a vintage style basket, along with milkshakes with whip cream and a cherry on top. Root beer floats are also crowd pleaser. These can be brought out by a waitress on roller skates to add the finishing touch.

Make sure to have a juke box playing some swing tunes at your car hop. Include some favorites to dance too like the twist and Elvis. Now it’s your turn to Rock Around the Clock while you enjoy all the work you’ve done!
