BIG SKY SCHOOL DISTRICT

After a one-year hiatus, the Big Sky School District’s All-School Carnival will make a return to the BSSD campus on Friday Sept. 12, from 2:30-5 p.m., as soon as classes release. This year the carnival will go on, even if it has to move inside the gym due to inclement weather, said school athletic director Tony Beardsley.

Carnival highlights will include more than a dozen games with prizes, a bounce house, giant slide, obstacle course, and a new inflatable game called, the “Wrecking Ball.” Cotton candy, snow cones, hot dogs and other fair foods will be on sale to help carnival goers keep energy high.

Tickets for carnival games and activities are $1 each, and most games will cost between one and two tickets. Carnival-fun enhancers such as confetti eggs and invisible ink will also be available for purchase. All funds raised from the event go directly to fund after-school activities in the school district.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to throw wet sponges at their favorite teachers, and those wishing to avoid ticket lines can pre-purchase tickets at the school office beginning Monday, Sept. 7.

Sponsor funds rolled over from last year’s cancelled event, providing for prizes and the obstacle course, slide, bounce house and wrecking ball.

Volunteers are needed to work several new games and activities, and those wishing to assist can contact Barbara Rowley at browley@3rivers.net.
