Party Supplies
Visit your local bowling alley for a fun party. Ask for lanes with bumper rails for younger guests. This will avoid the frustration of numerous gutter balls and ensure that all guests achieve a score. Many bowling alleys have party rooms or allow groups to set-up cake and ice-cream at tables behind the lanes. If not, take guests to a nearby pizza or ice-cream parlor after the game.
