Students at Union Academy have been hard at work planning their first annual “Falling into Fun” festival. The event, which is intended to build community participation within the school as well as bolster school spirit, will be free for the public to attend.
In addition to music and fun from DJ Don, the students have planned a host of activities that are sure to be fun for all ages. From a bonfire to hayrides, the first annual “Falling into Fun” event promises to be the perfect way to spend a Friday night.
Students will be selling baked goods and other crafts and items they have been working on in classes such as soaps, candles, and bat houses as well as BBQ plate dinners. Wristbands for kids to enjoy unlimited pony rides, hayrides, and time in the bouncy house will be available for a $10 purchase. The money raised on Friday will benefit Union Academy to help pay for future field trips, as well as serve as a community fundraiser for CareNet, as well as Atlas Sensory.
Students have been responsible for spearheading the event and have come up with activities and events for people of all ages to enjoy. There will be face painting, an ornament-making table, a photo booth, crafts, and even a marshmallow roast! Students will also be hosting a basketball game as well as a corn hole tournament.
The “Falling Into Fun” festival will be held on Friday, November 18 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
