Mark your calendar for the Fool Moon Party on July 28-29 with a myriad of outdoor games and activities

Information was received from Banda Island Resort recently about the island’s management to host a fun-filled weekend packed with lots of outdoor games and activities.

According to the organizers, the event is dubbed the “Games and Fool Moon Party” and will take place on Banda Island between July 28 and 29.

When Orbit Uganda contacted the Banda Island management about the name of the event, “why Fool Moon Party“ instead of “Full Moon Party”, in her words, Petra was quoted saying “It is ‘fool’ indeed. She added “was a joke, but guess folks now think the Banda Island woman can’t spell… 😉. 

The organizers promised participants to expect countless outdoor games and activities.

Highlights of the party will include; Ten teams of four enter a battle of running, hopping, jumping and falling over to win the Cup.

According to the information obtained from Banda, Travellers heading to the island coming as a team or as an individual, will be plugged into a team (and believe us… all winning stars!) or try to talk you into being a referee.  

The Games ‘n Flames Fool Moon weekend programme will be as follows;

Leave Kampala from Port Bell at 8:00am on Saturday 28th of July and will arrive on Banda Island in time for lunch on the beach. The first set of games will be gentle on your intestines after which, one and a half hours later, you’d be expected to carry out more strenuous challenges of the Games ‘n Flames.

Games go on till sunset when we will be more than ready to get our well deserved Shandy and watch the moon rise from the beach. After supper (I bet it is going to be a barbecue on the beach…) we flock to the castle for some indoor activities before running back to the huge campfire on the beach.

The following morning, organizers have planned the last part of the competition, and the closing ceremony (we’ll try to beat London on this!), followed by a quick lunch at 01:30pm before we leave Banda and are picked up mid-water by the MV Amani, just a couple hundred metres away from Banda.

Come with a few sets of free and easy clothes, you might become wet with sweat. Also, don’t forget your trainers/sneakers.
