- "Build your own Cootie" Contest! Have you ever wanted to build your own cootie? Now is your chance! As part of the Quasquicentennial, residents can do their best to replicate the former Robbinsdale-made game at home and bring their work to the Park. These "cooties" will be showcased at the Band Concert on Saturday, April 28th for the chance to win a prize. We ask that cooties be no more than 2 feet x 2 feet x 2 feet and all cooties must be brought home after the event. The contest will be broken into two age categories: 14 and under and 15 and over. Any materials can be used to build the cooties as long as they are non-hazardous materials. Creativity is encouraged in building your cootie.
