There is fun for the whole family at the El Paso County 4-H Fall Family Carnival at Skyview Middle School’s gymnasium on October 27 from 5-8pm. There will be food, games, a costume contest, bouncy house and petting zoo at the 3rd annual Fall Carnival. Bring a non-perishable food donation to the carnival for 10 free gaming tickets per child. Donations from the event will go to Care-N-Share to support local families in need.
Games abound, from a Wii duck hunt to a fishing pound, a ring toss and skull bowling. Launch straw rockets with your friends and win a cake or cupcake at the colorful cupcake/cake walk. Concessions will be available throughout the evening by the El Paso County Youth Council along with free entertainment from our Regional STEM Specialist. Prizes are also up for grabs during the 6:30 p.m., costume contest, so come dressed to impress! The highlights of the evening will be playing games with local 4-H members and enjoying the abundance of candy and prizes for your gaming skills.
Got questions about 4-H? 4-H members from throughout the county will be on hand to answer your questions and introduce you to the fun learning 4-H has to offer. 4-H not only holds events like this for enjoyment with friends, but we’re out to help grow and support our local communities. All ticket proceeds and food sales support our local 4-H clubs. From County Fair to Summer Fest to Fall Carnival, you can get a taste of what 4-H can do for you! So come on down to Skyview Middle School at 6350 Windom Peak Blvd. Colo. Spgs., CO 80923 for an enjoyable, family friendly evening this fall.
