The Chabot Elementary Fall Carnival has been a Rockridge tradition for years, and this year the tradition continues Sunday, October 24, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Excitement is building ahead of the event, which will be held on the NEW Chabot campus this year, after being held offsite for the past few years due to construction. Chabot has brand new school buildings, a new multi-purpose building, and two remodeled school yards for the community to enjoy, complete with new play structures. Chabot is at 6686 Chabot Road at Patton Street.

Traditionally this carnival is looked upon as the community event kicking off the 2010-2011 school year. Each year, new families with school-age children enter the school and are greeted by this fun-filled day. Little brothers and sisters enjoy participating; there are games for all ages.

The carnival is enhanced this year with the addition of a rock climbing wall and dunking booth – come dunk Principal Mayer or your favorite (or not so favorite) teacher!

Back by popular demand is the petting zoo, with live animals! Critters include goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese, pot belly pig, sheep and turkeys. They are put in child-sized pens to be pet, loved and adored.As always, entrance is free, with games for children of all ages, and PRIZES! There will again be a live DJ all day and a cake walk hourly.

Bring out your best Halloween costume: also back by popular demand, the kid’s costume contest at 1 p.m.

All proceeds benefit the Chabot Elementary PTA to fund enrichment programs like music, art, computers, the library and the garden; coordinate numerous after-school programs; help in the classrooms; and much more.
