Ballenas Secondary School’s 20th annual Spring Carnival is coming up on Friday, May 4.
There will be a variety of carnival staples to enjoy, including a dunk tank, horizontal bungee run, bouncy castle, cakewalk and more, as well as student-run booths with prizes.
Organized by the Ballenas Leadership group, the event is an opportunity for individuals and families to enjoy some festival fun and meet students, as well as a chance for the leadership group and students running booths to earn some money.
Tickets for the event are 25 cents each, or $5 for 20 tickets. The tickets are used to play at the booths, with booths taking anywhere from two to six tickets to play, said Anet Scaria, the Grade 11 leadership student who’s organizing the carnival.
Booths have prizes to win, including carnival toys and other prizes bought or made by students.
Ten per cent of the money made from each booth goes to the leadership group to cover the costs of the carnival, with the rest of the money made going to the students who run the booths, said Scaria.
A concession will also be run by the school’s Outdoor Pursuits class, operating on cash rather than tickets.
The festival takes place Friday, May 4 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Ballenas Secondary School (135 Pym St.).
