October 17: Wear Something Gaudy Day

image from

With Halloween just a couple weeks away, kids can get in the costume spirit early by putting together the most ludicrous and over-the-top outfits imaginable.

The Gaudy Fashion Show


  • Dress-up clothes
  • Scarves
  • Hawaiian leis
  • Necklaces
  • Masks
  • Shoes
  • Used clothes


  1. Have the kids and adults gather as many dress-up items as possible.
  2. Kids can then put together their outfits as they wish.
  3. Once kids have finalized outfits, they can model them.
  4. Let kids march down a catwalk and the other kids can cheer for what they consider the gaudiest outfit.

Check out the full October calendar. It includes floating holidays, specialty weeks, and specialty months.
