100 Mile House Elementary School is resurrecting its annual Spring Family Fair on Saturday (May 11) on the school fields from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
With new games, great prizes, a lot of food and plenty of entertainment, this year’s fair is sure to be a huge success, says Denise Balbirnie who is one of the correspondents.
Some of the traditional carnival games being planned include the bean bag toss, hockey shoot, and a fishing booth, which are always favourites. People can also try their luck at some of the new games, such as the electric maze, duck races, stuffy raffle or licorice dice.
Folks who have always wanted to try the TV game shows, now is your chance, says Balbirnie. The Spring Fair is also offering a version of the Wheel of Fortune, Minute to Win It challenges, and the Plinko game from the Price Is Right.
Along with carnival games, there are free activities planned, including three-legged races and sack races.
There will be plenty of food with the Knights of Columbus cooking hotdogs and hamburgers, and there will be popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream treats, and a cupcake walk, Balbirnie adds.
“If you don’t feel lucky with the carnival games, get a jump start on adding colour to your garden with beautiful hanging baskets from the Lone Butte Gardens, or browse the tables set up by local vendors and artisans.”
