Equipped with several slides, bouncy castles and games, it was hard to find a child who wasn’t beaming at the Pequenakonck Elementary School’s annual fall festival, “Harvest Fair.”
Put together by the Parent Teacher Organization, all proceeds go to support school programs to enhance the children’s experience, said the PTO’s treasurer, Jennifer Santis. In the past, funds raised have also contributed to the purchase of new playground equipment, added Ali Stern, co-president of the PTO.
In addition to the games, which, were accessible via the purchase of tickets or an all-access $20 wristband, there were several raffle prizes.
Both said this year’s fair featured new additions such as a tie dye station and redemption tickets for kids who lost a game. They still received a small prize.
“Because the entire family comes, it’s a fun day for everyone,” Santis said.
