If you’ve held many family reunion activities over the years, then you may feel like the gatherings could use some extra life pumped into them. Or if this is your first time hosting, you may want to incorporate some reunion rentals that will make a bold statement and really “wow” your relatives. Nothing’s worse than asking people to travel from around the country just to sit around, eat and not say much. These rentals will ensure your party is the most memorable ever! Rentals for family reunions run the gamut from popcorn and snow-cone machines, to Vegas-style casino games and murder mystery acting troupes.

Another one of the more clever family reunion ideas is to organize your family reunion around a Murder Mystery event.

Did you know you can rent a photo booth for family reunions? The average price is around 5/4 hours for a mall-style photo booth that instantly prints out slides of four keepsake photos.
