The Methodists sponsor it every year (yes, we're at a public school) so we brought home our fair share of crucifix erasers, bookmarks, sand art, etc... but it also means the cotton candy, popcorn, snow cones, balloons, bounce houses and carnival games are free. A fair trade, I'd say.
We loved it! It made us a little less homesick for some of the activities we left behind. The boys have already made plans to practice their BB gun skills for next year's carnival. Yes, you heard that right, BB guns and crucifixes heavily dominated this Fall Festival, we are in Alabama, after all.
