Looking For Clever "Goodie Bag" ItemsViews: 907

My little town is preparing for its annual festival, "Middletown Days." The Central City Park Committee which is responsible for the festival has given the local business association permission to use the outdoor bandstand area for free on Sunday. We simply need to determine what we should do with that space. Now, we could easily set up vendor tables, but we want to be creative and memorable. There are going to be a lot of boths there that are your traditional jewelry, tie-dye shirt stuff. We have been thinking about setting up an area where military families can make free phone calls using Skype from laptop computers. We are also thinking about handing out "goodie bags" to the public and door a door-prize drawing at the close of the event.

What are some clever items we could include in the goodie bags besides flyers and refrigerator magnets and water bottle clip-ons? What other things might we do to make this outdoor, once-a-year event memorable?

Anna, Do the cookies come individually wrapped? I would likely want to put one cookie in a goodie bag, not a whole bag of cookies in a goodie bag.

About half of such bags get tossed without even looking in them because of exactly the kind of thing you mention. However, you cannot put something valuable in each bag either. So instead, use it as a drawing by putting a numbered ticket in each bag and draw door prizes. Businesses get a lot of publicity by participating, few bags are ever tossed, and most people hang around till the drawing is over.

Also consider restaurant buy one get one type coupons. People love these and keep looking at the rest of the bag.

First off, I think I am correct in saying that I am contributing some of the tote bags for your event (yes?), but I notice that you posted this question on my network (B2B Networking), however you didn't feed back on suggestions that were made. Did none of our suggestions fit your bill or were there some that held some merit?
