Fall festivals to begin this week

Published 4:03 pm Monday, October 8, 2012

School doesn’t always have to be associated with work, and several local schools will reinforce that point by holding fall festivals for students and their families in October.

Clanton Elementary’s annual Fall Festival is set for Monday, Oct. 15, from 4–7 p.m. at the youth league football field and track area at Clanton City Park.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend, and children age 3 and under will be admitted free.

Armbands will be sold for $10 each, plus an optional $1 charge per person for access to the petting zoo, featuring the Hairless Cat and his best friend Baxter the Rat.

All CES students will sing at the festival. Other amusements will include games, inflatables, a slide, a climbing wall, swings, a pirate ship and a hayride.

For more information, call CES at (205) 280-2730.

Jemison Elementary will host its fall festival Friday, Oct. 12, from 5–8 p.m.

Admission is free and open to anyone in the community.

Games will range from 50 cents to $1 each and will include a Coke bottle toss, Lucky Duck, Go Fish, Plinko and Bingo (for parents).

Hayrides, popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs, chips and drinks are also parts of the festival.

All proceeds from the festival will help fund classroom supplies for JES teachers.

Thorsby School’s fall festival is set for Thursday, Oct. 25, from 5–8 p.m.

Everyone is invited to attend for a small admission fee.

A fall festival at Isabella is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 5:30–7:30 p.m.

Students and their families are invited to attend and participate in various games.

Admission is free, and concessions will be sold.
