It was an evening of fun and games during the Forest Park Elementary Carnival.

This was the first year for the carnival, which was sponsored by the Title I Program at Forest Park.

"It was a huge success," Title 1 coordinator Debbie Zimmerman said.

Students were invited back to the school with their families for an evening of food and activities. Each student was given a pack of 20 tickets for activities and each activity required one ticket. Students took part in pop ring toss, musical chairs, cakewalk, duck pond, ping-pong ball toss, book bingo, face painting, corn hole and fishing.

Dinner consisted of hot dogs cooked on the grill, chips, carrots, apple slices, juice and water.

Clifford the Big Red Dog, sponsored by Scholastic Books, and the smell of freshly popped popcorn welcomed visitors as they passed the bounce house upon entering the building.

Families were also able to visit the Scholastic Book Fair to purchase books where profits will be used to purchase additional books for classrooms.

That sounded like soooo much fun ! Wish I could've been there!!!! We always had them at Jackson Twp School (many many years ago!!!!) and it was a great way to wind down the school year!!
