Help me plan a dreadlock-themed party. A very long party.

My partner has been wanting dreadlocks for some time now, so recently we ordered a kit online and we are planning on doing the dreading ourselves. Since it is such a time-intensive process, however, we thought that we would have an open house all day where friends could drop by and help dread (two at a time) and otherwise watch movies, play games, visit, and eat. Is this feasible? How do you plan a party where you don't know how many people are going to show up, when they will arrive or how long they will stay? Can you help me plan food, games, movies, etc?
I do not want opinions on dreadlocks themselves. I have read http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/27624 and I understand the typical concerns. I am not asking if or how to get dreads, I am asking for help entertaining people while conscripting them to help with the work.
