Thursday nights to feature free dress-up fun for the whole family
Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet, and Old Country Buffet are inviting families to explore a new adventure on Thursday Family Nights starting July 2, 2015. The buffet restaurants will offer an assortment of fun props including tiger headbands, elephant glasses and other Jungle-inspired headpieces that will transform families into their favorite wildlife creatures. The free Go Wild! Jungle Fun Dress-Up accessories will be available for use in-restaurant every Thursday night from 5 to 8 p.m. at participating restaurants.
“Parents enjoy visiting our restaurants to engage with their children in a family-friendly environment,” said Tom Peterson, Chief Marketing Officer for Ovation Brands. “At no extra cost, the Go Wild! Jungle Fun Dress-Up accessories are an opportunity for children to spark their creativity and turn family dinner into a fun memorable experience.”
Every Thursday night, starting on July 1, families may dress up as a lion, zebra, monkey or other lovable animals with a variety of accessories and props including glasses, ears, headbands and hats. All the accessories are free to use and available first come first serve.
Children may let their imaginations run wild with these jungle-themed props. Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet, and Old Country Buffet encourage families to capture these moments on their own cameras or smartphones to share with friends and loved ones.
Families that take photos of themselves in the Go Wild! Jungle Fun Dress-Up accessories and upload them to the official Facebook pages for Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet, or Old Country Buffet, will have a chance to receive a $25 gift card to the family casual restaurants. Weekly winners will be selected at random between July 2 – August 31, 2015. Photos should be tagged with #GoWildDressUp.
The Go Wild! Jungle Fun Dress-Up will be available in all 318 restaurants through August 31, 2015. Accessories are suitable for children three years and older. Props may vary by location and are only available for in-restaurant use.
