Fun Was Had By All at the SHS Carnival

abductionEven cold, blustery weather couldn’t keep folks away from the fun tat the 22nd annual Scarsdale High School Carnival last weekend. The popular event, organized by the SHS Central School Government, had something for everyone to enjoy with carnival games, thrilling rides, and traditional snacks like cotton candy and funnel cakes. Exemplifying the District’s commitment to their motto Non-Sibi (not for oneself alone), the school government will donate their proceeds from the carnival to the Greenburgh Nature Center and Neighbors Link.

The evening of Friday April 12th seemed to draw an older teenage crowd, with middle and high schoolers braving rides like Alien Abduction, Pharaoh’s Fury, and the Tornado. While some missed the classic carnival ride The Zipper, there was still plenty of fun to be had playing games such as Whac-A-Mole, Roll-A-Ball, and Mini Hoops with prizes like basketballs and stuffed animals to be won.family

Saturday the 13th saw the carnival, run by Newtown Shows, full of families with younger children squealing with delight on rides like Super Round Up, Super Slide, and Puppy Role. Children of all ages enjoyed student-run games including the BullPen, the Dunk Tank, and the High Striker (hammer/ bell).

Putting a personal touch on the event’s amusements, SHS student clubs offered activities like a photo station complete with fun props, face painting, henna designs, balloon art and so much more. Other clubs such as the Spanish club offered churros for sale and the French club served crepes and cotton candy. In addition, the Gardening Club had spring plants for sale, the Breast Cancer Awareness Club offered bracelet making, and the Habitat for Humanity Club had a super sized Jenga to be enjoyed.

All of the students who participated in bringing these activities to life, and especially those in student government, should be proud of the hard work they put into organizing and hosting yet another amazing carnival for the community.
