Fall Fest at Kootenai Elementary

A day of games, good food and fun to raise funds for Kootenai Elementary PTA

By Reader Staff

The playground at Kootenai Elementary School will transform into a festive carnival on Friday, Oct. 6. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Kootenai Parent-Teacher Association and promises to be fun for the entire community.

The event is known as “Fall Fest,” and centers on a number of themed booths offering prizes, as well as several bounce houses. A delicious feast was also donated by Sweet Lou’s in Ponderay. The staff at Home Depot will be on hand to offer fun building activities for children. Northside Fire will offer a meet-and-greet and the Bonner County EMS will show off their new “off-road” ambulance. In addition, there will be fun games and activities such as a cake walk and face-painting. Raffle prizes have also been donated by local businesses.

“This event really celebrates families,” said Kootenai Principal Kelli Knowles. “The kids look forward to it every year – and it provides a fun, safe alternative to traditional door-to-door sales-based fundraisers.”

Fall Fest is open to all families. Tickets will be available at the gate before and during the event, which will take place between 3-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 6 at the Kootenai Elementary School. Tickets for games and activities start at 25 cents each, and wristbands for endless bouncing in the bouncy house are $10 each at the door. Thanks to Potlatch Credit Union, payments can be made with either credit cards, cash or check.

Please come celebrate and help support education in our community!
