What is Carnival?
Carnival is a family-fun community event for ALL Wilchester families and neighbors! This fun event is held annually and includes games, inflatables, food, and prize/raffle drawings. The event itself is free, but you will need tickets to play games and buy food, and you will need a wristband to play on the inflatables. There are also raffle tickets available to win prizes. All proceeds benefit the school through the Wilchester PTA.
What's the SCHEDULE for Carnival Week?
The carnival schedule will be announced closer to the activities. Stay tuned for more information!
How Can I Help?
Be on the lookout for ways to help at Carnival! There are many ways, including:

100 Food and Game tickets should allow a family of four to eat dinner and play an average of 5-8 games.

* Buy a lanyard for each child to hold their individual tickets (only $3)
* Buy a wristband for each child to have unlimited use of inflatables ($12)
Buy a Wristband!Pre-Orders are Closed, but you can purchase a wristband at the event!
A wristband will allow unlimited use for your child to play on inflatables. Each child must have his/her own wristband.

Donate Items for the Prize Drawings! Parents can purchase items from the Amazon Wish List for prize drawings. There are hundreds of items on the wish list and they all ship directly to Carnival!

Work YOUR Shift!
Each child's parent will be responsible to work a shift during carnival (so, if you have 2 children at Wilchester, your family will be assigned 2 shifts to work). Carnival only works when everyone chips in to help, so it is important that you work your shift! If there is a conflict, it is YOUR responsibility to find a replacement.
