A large crowd attended this year’s PTO Carnival.

The PTO Carnival was a fundraiser for Cannon Falls Elementary School on Friday February 28th from 5:00-8:00pm. There were a bunch of carnival games including a cakewalk, bounce houses, mini golf, minute-to-win-it games and so much more. It was $5.00 for 20 tickets or $20.00 for a wristband to play unlimited games all night. Food, snacks, and drinks could be purchased in the cafeteria throughout the event.

Attendees could earn stamps for winning games and then trade the stamps for prizes that cost a certain amount for various prizes. The amounts were 100 stamps, 90 stamps, 80 stamps, and so on from there. Using your stamps, you could choose from a variety of prizes including sunglasses, light up balls, candy, jumper boots, sticky hands, and fire rings. 

The carnival is set up by the PTO also known as the Parent Teacher Organization. The PTO is in charge of all of our school’s fundraisers.
