Summer may be over, but it’s not the end of festival season just yet.
Nashport Elementary School’s famous Fall Festival and Bazaar brought out a large crowd once again this year. Visitors were drawn to all of the festive activities that make fall such a special time of year. From homemade arts and crafts, to hayrides and a petting zoo, there was a little something for everyone.
"We have two floors in the classroom of games and prizes, outdoor we have the Muskingum County Animal Shelter, we have dog agility," said Communication’s Director, Elicia Brooks. "There’s tons of wonderful food and snacks in the cafeteria, we also have a very large set of vendors in our bazaar."
There were both live and silent auctions with donated items from area businesses and community members. The popular fest is Nashport Elementary School’s largest fundraiser, raising thousands of dollars each year for school needs.
"I think the bazaar is a really spectacular portion, I think the stuff that’s in the live and silent auction is incredible, we’ve had just an unbelievable amount of donations from the community, which is just an amazing thing and has made us very proud of this event," Brooks said.
Nashport students even had the opportunity to silly string their favorite teacher.
