A Halloween Carnival In Toongabbie That Unites A Local Community
The Toongabbie West Public School Halloween Carnival
Every year, Toongabbie West Public School throws the annual Halloween Carnival. The carnival is open to the public, young and old. Every year all who attend the carnival enjoy themselves, even Spike the dog (the Elders mascot), as he was hugged and high-fived by the visitors.
During the carnival, kids were given a set of colouring books and they become very involved in a colouring competition, a wonderful way that children are able to participate. The colouring competition is definitely a great attraction for the Toongabbie area and there are plans to go full out to promote next year’s Halloween Carnival and competition to the public.
The Halloween Carnival is known to bring families and individuals together. Every year, the Toongabbie West Public School on Ballandella Road holds the carnival in the school grounds between 3pm and 8pm. The community come together to celebrate the school and the surrounding community, and in years to come, the school wants the carnival to be even bigger and better every year.
Parents in Toongabbie are always looking for things to do with their children. Therefore, the Halloween Carnival is a great place to start, as there are plenty of rides, live entertainment, market stalls, vintage and model car displays, and many more attractions that parents and children can enjoy together. Parents and children are encouraged to dress up for the carnival as their favourite characters or they can simply come up with something creative.
Third Annual Halloween Carnival
At the third annual Halloween Carnival, which was held on the 29th of October, the weather was amazing. It was fate that allowed it to be a great evening for all, and it seemed that each attendee had a great time at the event. A large number of attendees have offered their feedback in regards to events for Halloween 2011, and all of them agreed that the event was a huge success. There is always something new and different at the carnival, and each year, the visitors find the carnival to be better than the previous year. The third annual carnival saw a few leftovers in showbags and lucky dips, which the organisers agreed to sell at a much lower price until they are sold out. The leftover pumpkins were also on sale, which were priced at $2.00 each.
As soon as everything is sold, the school will have over $9,500.00 in profit to show from the carnival. The amount is certainly something to be proud of especially during this economic uncertainty. The hardworking carnival committee of Toongabbie West Public School were greatly appreciated for their hard work and without the committee’s effort and their undying attention and dedication, none of the above would have been possible.
Several businesses in town have helped make the carnival a huge success as well, such as Mr Martin Bean, Twinkle Toes Dance, Parramatta City Band, and the Toongabbie Dance Group. Their performances and entertainment abilities at the fair were excellent and the visitors certainly had a great time. Not to be missed was the classical car club who showed their support throughout the carnival. The school community played a huge part, as well, as they were in charge of baking scrumptious cakes, selling raffle tickets, distributing flyers, donating items, and helping with the preparation, which would have been impossible to tackle without their help.
Fourth Toongabbie Halloween Carnival
At the fourth Toongabbie Halloween Carnival, the carnival received an even bigger crowd. There were performances, delicious food and beverages, and the crowd definitely wowed everyone with their amazing costumes. The rides were definitely a favourite among the children and parents were happy to see how much their children were enjoying the day.
As with the previous years, the 2011 carnival received plenty of help from the community and the committee members of the school. The Halloween Carnival 2012 was slightly better than the previous year, and in 2013, the organisers are looking at making it an even bigger and better. With different promotion materials and plenty of ways to advertise the event, there will definitely be more people attending the yearly Halloween Carnival. The Toongabbie carnival is seen as one of the carnivals to look forward to every year.
