Heavy rain stopped just in time for the Weston Memorial Fun Fair last night. Hundreds of people came out to play games, bounce in the air castles, and support their local school.
Libby Sestito, the school’s office administrator, said that the fair was “really great. It was very well attended, even though we thought we were going to get poured on. It was really unbelievable.”
According to Ms Sestito, the parents’ council estimates that they raised around $5000. The money will likely go toward computers for the computer lab.
Kids and adults had a great time racing in the potato sack race, and watching the staff and teachers race as well. The hotdogs were popular, and the animal encounter was a hidden gem. Kids (and their chaperones!) could get up close and pat snakes, rabbits, and exotic animals like the bearded lizard, chinchilla, and skinny pig. The animal keepers were wonderful with the delighted crowd of little ones.
Finally, your correspondent can attest that the cupcakes were a steal at 50¢. Delicious!
