It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, there is a chill in the air and autumn is officially here. Once again, Piñon Elementary will join forces with Chamisa Elementary for the Second Annual White Rock Fall Festival.
Events will be at Piñon Elementary School, 90 Grand Canyon Dr., White Rock, Oct. 13. Crafts are open to the public at 9 a.m.; the carnival starts at 10 a.m. All events end at 2 p.m.
Piñon will sell pumpkins and baked goods and have a variety of games. There will be games and prizes, a pie contest, local food vendors, bouncy houses, face and pumpkin painting and more. Tickets will be available for purchase. Attendees may purchase four tickets for $1.
Those who attend may also decide to shop for their holiday gift needs. A variety of wares will be available at the Arts and Crafts Fair including jewelry, Scentsy candles, fashion and clothing, children’s items, decorative silverware and baskets and photography.
In addition, the Los Alamos Fire and Police departments will participate in this year’s festival. The fire department will be available to answer questions and provide information of fire safety. They will have a truck on exhibit and Sparky the Fire dog will be on hand. The police department will be available to answer questions and provide information on trick-or-treating safety.
Last year’s White Rock Fall Festival was a major fundraising opportunity for the Parent Teacher Organizations.
This year, proceeds from the event benefit both Piñon and Chamisa PTOs, which help to pay for school and teacher supplies, field trips and other items.
