Juniors pull off Halloween carnival for community

The junior class decided to add their own Halloween carnival and a haunted trail to the Halloween events happening in the community this year. Since it was scheduled for the Saturday before, there was no conflict with existing activities.

According to sophomore Dylan Cornish, it was convenient because the location wasn’t too far out of way and the trail was perfect for older kids, too.

“It had a little bit of everything for everyone,” Cornish said. “I’m a big fan of haunted houses at Halloween, and sometimes my mom doesn’t want to drive to Palestine for an hour then come back.”

The carnival had activities along with temporarily tattoos and face painting.

“There were a lot of games,” junior Sonia Dominguez said. “There also was face painting and temporary tattoos.”

Juniors participated by dressing up for the haunted trail, watching the children playing games and being in charge of the games.

“My favorite thing to do was help the little kids with the bean bag toss,” Dominguez said. “And I thought the trail went great.”

The haunted trail was the highlight of the night, especially for the older participants.

“I loved the haunted trail,” sophomore Dylan Cornish said. “That’s the main reason I decided to go.”
