Kids can scare up some fun at the Halloween Carnival


October 23, 2019

Preparations are underway for the annual Halloween Carnival at the at the Lincoln School Gym on Thursday, Oct. 31.

During the carnival, elementary-aged students can participate in games and activities put on by the 7th and 8th graders.

"The junior high school kids really like to help the littler children with the games" said PTSO President, Melody McDonough, who added "it's an exciting transition for them once they get into those grades."

The carnival runs from 5-7 p.m. Admission is $5, which covers unlimited games at the event. A discount will be offered to anyone participating in the food drive by bringing boxed or canned goods to donate. The discount will be $1 per each item donated. A hot dog dinner will also be offered during the carnival, for a cost of $2 per student.

This year, there will be a Haunted Hallway, which is being staged by the Junior Class with the help of the 5th and 6th grade students. In addition, there will be a pumpkin carving contest with awards for the Scariest, Funniest, and Most Creative, along with a photo booth, face painting, and games where prizes can be won.

During the day at the Halloween Walk, there will be a costume contest where all of the kids get to show off their costumes to each other. The PTSO provides medals for Scariest, Funniest, and Most Creative costumes and the contest is held during the day, so all the school-aged kids are eligible and don't necessarily have to be present at the carnival at a certain time.

Volunteers are always welcome to help out. Areas where help is most needed is with set-up and clean-up. If you would like to help, you can contact Melody McDonough at 406-461-5001.
