Fall Festival

Last Friday there was a Fall Festival at the Green Ridge Mountain School and although the Great Pumpkin did not turn into a carriage, we delivered our princess early so that we could check out the activities from the beginning.  The flyer promised delicious food, treats and drinks to purchase.  There was going to be tons of games and prizes (candy), cake walks, and raffle tickets for chances to win Gift Baskets.  Are we having fun yet?

I have never seen so many goblins, ghouls, and reapers among Hello Kitties, supermen, and one lone angel.  There were also many tall witches with green faces and pointy hats.  I went as myself and that was scary.

The most imaginative costume was on a little girl dressed in blue and with peacock feathers.  When she pulled on some strings, the feathers fanned out behind her.  They were as pretty as those on a real peacock.  She won the costume contest.  Congratulations!

There were many games and the object was to toss balls through hoops and holes and be rewarded with candy.  Many of the costume clad attendants could also get their faces painted if they were tired of tossing balls.

The most exciting and most popular activity took place at the dunk tank where the principal and teachers took many baths.  The children threw balls with gusto and when a teacher hit the water, the crowd cheered.

Needless to say, a good time was had by all and like all good things in life, it had to come to an end.  But that is not to say that there aren't any scary creatures out there--still.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
