Fun Times at the Fall Festival!

The Fall Festival was a lot of fun for all who came out to participate!

From jumping castles, bouncy obstacle courses and inflatable slides to giant hamster balls and more inflatable activities….and from carnival games to Bingo in the Library – kids and adults had a great time! Thank you to all who came out to the Fall Festival!


A huge thank you to all who donated items for our grade-level themed baskets which we raffled off! These baskets were amazing and filled with so many fun and creative things. Congratulations to all of the basket winners.

This year’s Fall Festival was a blast and featured many new games, inflatables and tasty treats!
