With a goal of improving on a long-time tradition at the school, the Saukville Parent Association has remade its popular fall festival scheduled for this Friday, 6 to 8 p.m. at Saukville Elementary.
“We changed a lot of things for this year, with brand new games and a lot of different things to try, to make it exciting and new for everyone,” said Rhonda Kamenick, festival committee co-chair.
Raffle and silent auction prizes at the festival include toys, gift cards and also an iPad complete with stylus and case donated by Port Washington State Bank. Other big ticket item is a Milwaukee Admirals VIP package with tickets, food, memorabilia and a Zamboni ride.
There will also be lots of food for sale, including cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn and a caramel apple station, plus fun food games like a cake walk.
In addition to new games, the festival will feature a bounce house, a haunted courtyward, a Wii sports competition, and cosmetic fun like face painting, hair feather and nail polish stations.
Money raised at the festival helps the parent association pay for extras for the school: special field trip busing like the yearly trip to the Nutcracker and technology including SMART boards, digital cameras, and e-readers. Another recent project was the new garden in front of the school.
There is no admission fee for the festival and it’s open to the community.
