Games - Bringing Spooky Fun
The Games are always a fun-filled highlight of the Pumpkin Festival! Our Games Committee is bringing back some classic favorites from previous years such as Bouncy Castle, Giant Slide, Zombie Shootout, Fish Pond and Pretty Pumpkin. We are hard at work adding some BOOtastic new games as well -- stay tuned!
Parents, don't forget to volunteer for Games in the MS Gym. We need help supervising game booths and selling tickets. We hope to see many smiling faces at the Pumpkin Festival this year! A special note to Lower Primary parents: Pumpkin Festival is a special and magical time for the little ones playing in the gym and enjoying entertainment, pumpkin patch, books and all aspects of the fair. We encourage you to enjoy these moments with your young children! Do please volunteer your time for set-up the day before, morning of, and take down directly post festival. Every helping hand and hour before, during, and after makes such a difference to the success of our Festival!
Special shout out to all the DADS! Our pumpkins are the biggest and shiniest in Hong Kong, and shipped directly to us from the US for this special occasion!
