There were a wide range of activities including a cookie walk, mum walk, duck pond, dinosaur egg hunt, tattoo parlor, bean bag toss, face painting, basketball hoop shot and football toss. In the cafeteria, a food court served a wide variety of items and provided seating for both diners and the audience. Many businesses and individuals contributed items for the silent auction and the carnival. A main goal of the PTO is to raise funds for new cafeteria tables.
