Centennial High School hosted a harvest festival and welcomed anyone and everyone to come and enjoy.
This event took place on October 27, 2022, at the school from 6-9 p.m. There were many carnival games and a haunted house. Tickets for the carnival games were 30 for $20 or 15 for $10. The haunted house tickets were sold for $8 each. Not only were tickets sold at the doors but they were also available online at Around the school, QR codes were posted and could be scanned and were a guide to the ticket purchase process.
Along with the haunted house, a trunk or treat, food vendors, and carnival games were at the festival. The booths were held by the different clubs at Centennial High School. Band, cheer, dance, Gay/Straight Alliance, JROTC, Student Council, National Honor Society, and many other extracurriculars held booths.
NJROTC sold Halloween-themed treats like monster brownies, pumpkin muffins, and Tangulu. The group also hosted a booth in which the game was a gumball hunt for ice cream. Key Club brought Pan Dulce and had a ping pong ball toss game. Around the campus were other games like ring toss and giant Jenga. Not only did the school have game booths but there was a tarot card reading area, and many dessert stands.
Centennial had many successful harvest festivals in the past and luckily this is said to be another one of them.
“I had fun at the fall fest, not only did I get to work it and meet new people but I was able to roam freely and see how exciting school can be after hours,” student attendee, Gisselle Gonzalez said.
Overall, there were more than 2000 people that attended the harvest festival.
