Carnival Moves to Fall

This upcoming school year, one of Gayton’s most anticipated events – the Spring Carnival – will be held earlier in the school year as a “Fall Festival.” The main reasons for the change in timing was to space out the larger fundraisers and to possibly avoid “spring showers” to keep the carnival outside!

Save-the-date for Friday, Oct. 13, 2017!

A new format and new activities will include a Chili Cook-Off…. so dads, get your favorite tailgating recipes ready! We’ll also have Jonathan the Juggler, a football field goal challenge and The Dog Wagon gourmet hot dog food truck added to the lineup.

Planning has already begun, and the first committee meeting will be held soon. Contact co-chairs Amanda and Elliott Byers at if you have any fun ideas and want to be a part of the planning of the Fall Festival.
