Cakewalk (carnival game)


Cakewalk (carnival game)

A 'game' played at carnivals, funfairs, and fundraising events, which is really more of a raffle.

Numbered squares are laid out in a path. Tickets are sold to participants, with the number of squares in the path being the maximum number of tickets sold at a time. The participants walk around the path in time to music, which plays for a duration and then stops. A number is then called out, and the person standing on the square with that number wins a cake.

At a fundraiser event, the cakes are often donated by members, and multiple cakes are given out, one for each round.
