Carnival goers enjoyed cotton candy

Carnival fun at Kent Elementary

Kent Elementary School students and parents shared laughs during games, a dunk tank, and hot dogs at the school’s annual carnival.

Kent Elementary School students and parents shared laughs during games, a dunk tank, and of course cotton candy and hot dogs at the school’s annual carnival Thursday night (June 9).

Although Kent PAC vice chair Michelle Mailhot couldn’t give exact numbers, she estimated about 500 residents visited the carnival.

“It was a huge success,” she said. “We were fortunate that the rain held off and both the young and the young at heart had a fantastic time.”

The vice chair added that Kent PAC Fundraised through out the year to provide this event to the community at a low to no cost.

“We had face painting, balloon twisters, a magician, dunk tank, mini golf, photo booth, Kiwanis Food Truck, Concession and much more,” she added. “A very dedicated group of Kent PAC Parents are the reason that this event happened.”

Of course, the highlighted crowd favourite was the dunk tank, where Kent principal Stan Watchorn and School District 78 superintendent Dr. Karen Nelson were both auctioned off to the highest bidder for the first dunk.

“It was a fun and memorable way to end the school year. A good time was had by all,” Mailhot concluded.
