Farragut Elementary School’s eagerly anticipated 9th annual Fall Festival is on Saturday, October 18th from 11am to 4pm on the athletic field just off the main parking lot behind the school.
Parking is free. All families are invited to come and enjoy a day of Halloween fun. Take advantage of discounted pre-sales ticket pricing before and after school by the front main doors starting October 13-17th – 25 tickets for $20 and an all-day pass for inflatables is $10. Tickets can also be bought on the day of the Festival for $1 each and the all-day inflatable pass for $12. Entry to the festival is free.
The Festival includes huge climb and slide inflatables, 20 game booths, a jail house, two Haunted Houses, food, a Harvest Boo-tique and entertainment by the Culver City High Marching band and much more. There is also a chili cook off with a celebrity chef judging panel including: Tubs Chili, the Culver City Mayor and a Culver City firefighter....and more.
Some of the most exciting attractions are ….Two Haunted Houses are being put together by parents who moonlight in the movie biz. Many studio props are being used to create two levels of “terror” - one “Not Scary” level for the under 5 year old set and one “Really Scary” level for the older kids.
A jail house is center stage for attendees to “jail” a teacher, parent or friend. Three large inflatables that kids of all ages will love, a caterpillar crawler, rock climber, and a 5-in-1 Twister Combo.
More than 20 Booths sponsored by each individual classroom are featured where children can participate in carnival like games and craft booths.
The day will continue to be filled with music acts from our hottest local kid bands… Rockfish, The 335's and YouTube sensation Mama Bares.
Always a favorite with the community is the chili cook-off contest. The competition is great and the end result is even better! The entries are available for sale after Culver City’s own celebrity chef judging panel select the winners. Come taste some delicious chili to see how talented the Farragut families’ chefs really are.
Fabulous Food: Delicious authentic Mexican food and pizza as well as hot dog extravaganza will be sold at great prices. And if that isn’t enough, you can always fill up on popcorn or eat a cricket if you DARE!
A Harvest Craft Boo-tique: Including hand-crafted jewelry, ceramics, art prints, knit items, paper art, and a variety of other home decorative and seasonal gift items.
