Gingerfest  II
Redder and Better

Join us for Gingerfest II at the Old Idaho Penitentiary; Friday May 8th, 6pm  10pm (9pm last admission); $5 adults (12 and up), $3 kids (3 and up). Show off your red hair or just celebrate ginger fun with friends. Enjoy family friendly games like "Bowling for Inmates", "Cherry Pit Spit", "Big Red Races", and more. Random participation prizes will be given out all night and there will be special "Best Ginger" contests for adults and kids (see details below).  Food trucks (Free Range Pizza, Rio Grande, and Burgerlicious),  red beverages and wine (courtesy of the Friends of the Historical Society) and beer (Crooked Fence Brweing) will also be available for purchase.

Ginger Human Contest Rules & Regulations  
1.) All "gingers" can enter their name into a random drawing to be a contestant in one of our categories (Lil Ginger, Middle Ginger, Adult Ginger). You can only enter the day of the Gingerfest event May 8, 2015.    
2.) Lil' Gingers (ages 0-12) can enter the drawing to participate from 6-7:00pm, Middle Gingers (ages 13-20) will have until 7:30pm to enter their name, and Adult Gingers (ages 21+) will have until 8pm to enter.  
3.) All contestants in each category will randomly be selected by drawing. (10 males and 10 females in each category)  
4.) A panel of judges will narrow the field to three finalists in each category, and gender, by using three criteria based only on GINGER HAIR: Style, Fullness/Body, Depth of Color. Each criteria is judged from 1-5 with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. Judges decisions are final.
4.5.) Adult Male Category is for ginger BEARDS. The Beardsmith team will be judging this category. Contact them at 208-283-2761 to see what they are looking for!    
5.) One final winner in each category, and by gender, will be selected from the three finalists by popular vote/crowd participation.  
SPECIAL MESSAGE, PLEASE READ:  Please remember this is for fun, no one is getting paid, or paid off, to win. This is a subjective, silly contest that has no bearing on human goodness, talent, or your or your child's worth in this world. Family members and friends of judges are not eligible to win. Your ginger is still an amazing human being even if they are not selected to be a participant, a finalist, or winner. If you fear you may be upset if you are not guaranteed a victory, maybe just play some games, enjoy a great historic site, and sit this one out.
