Carnivel party

ok we are going to have popcorn, snowcones and cotton candy for the party....but the actual food....what should we serve? We are inviting 200 people. The cheaper the better!

I was thinking like a "build a hotdog" thing. There would be buns, chili, shreaded cheese, bacon bits, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. With a bunch of diffrent kinds of chips.

Anyone else have any diffrent ideas? I need the cheapest thing posible that would fit the theme. Pizzas would run a lot (600+ tax for 50 pizzas! I want to focus more on decorations and fun stuff!)

Also how would I let parents know NO extra kids (unless they provide money for their food I am limited on funds!) and NO drop offs! I can NOT watch 100 kids by myself!

What if you made them rather than buying them already made? It's just a hot dog and corn bread, right? You could make mini ones cut the dogs in half or thirds, dip them in the corn bread mix and fry them up.

What about little mini burgers, like sliders.

Instead of big pizza's how about bagel bites.
