2019 Bowl-a-thon T-Shirt Logo.png

The Theme is 50’s theme – lets go back in time to when life was simple and when America was finally recovering from the war, rock n’ roll was emerging, Hollywood ruled and screaming teenagers were swooning over Elvis. Ladies break out your poodle skirts, guys slick back your hair. It’s time for a 50’s party!!!


When thinking of a Costume- Think Grease.

For ladies, the ’50s look was longer skirts with collared blouses or T-shirts, a coordinating scarf tied around the neck or ponytail, and bobby socks with saddle shoes. High ponytails with tightly curled bangs are a classic girly hairstyle. For guys who want a tough look, pair a leather jacket with tight jeans and a plain white T-shirt. Don’t forget the greased pompadour!


For a more conservative look, tuck a short-sleeved collared shirt into slacks and add a bow tie. Part your hair to the side and you’re set.

Best Costume- Top three individuals with the best costume will be awarded!!
