Halloween Parade & Carnival to be held at Rancho Santa Fe School


halloweenbanner-ConnellyRSF-EF LogoThe Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation invites all community members to join school families at the annual Halloween Parade and Carnival on Friday, Oct. 29. A new addition this year is event sponsor Connelly Residential Residential Group. The RSF Education Foundation is thankful to Brian Connelly for his support and encourages other community partners to support efforts of the Education Foundation throughout the year.

The fun kicks off with the parade beginning promptly at 1 p.m., followed immediately by the carnival held on the upper field of the school. Students and their families in grades pre-K through 6th grade will gather in the school gym at 12:45 p.m. Skeletons, witches, princesses and superheroes will parade from the gym, through the town, and back to the school. Parents are asked to walk with their children.

Immediately following the parade, the carnival will begin (1:15 p.m.) on the upper field. As always, the carnival will include a variety of games and activities. Each class at the school stages a booth, to include a rock climbing wall, “Dance Dance Revolution,” a photo booth, the popular Cake Walk, “Boom Blast,” and much more. Countless parent volunteers facilitate plenty of games and prizes for everyone. The cake decorating contest will flaunt the children’s “spooktacular” creativity, and the winning cakes and other home-baked treats will be sold at the bake sale.

Admission is $20 in advance or $25 on the day of the carnival. Wristbands go on sale Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 27 and 28, at school pick-up and drop-off locations.

Special thanks to Xtreme Fun and Stumps Village Market for in-kind donations. The Co-Chairs of the Halloween Carnival are Leslie Harris and Dorinda Miller. There is more information on the district’s website,
