To celebrate the blooming of roses and garden flowers, Peralta families put on a year-end event featuring many free events, open to the community. Join in a full-flung festival for four hours at the school! Springfest features a bouncy house, petting zoo, carnival games and climbing wall, garden games and free face-painting. At one o’clock, we start a rollicking cake walk, DJ’d by Steve Wright, will lead us dancing to soulful tunes as Mark French calls out the numbers when its time to sit, or urges us to wave our arms! We give away over fifty wonderful cakes baked by Peralta families, and many carnival games provide chances for kids to compete for prizes through the day. Masa making fun and henna in the school garden, with flower and tomato sales!
So please drop by, buy a pork sandwich or hot dog, paint a flowerpot, and have the chance to win a cake at our cake walk! Hope to see you on the climbing wall!
We’re just over a week away from Peralta’s annual Spring Festival, Peralta in Bloom! This year you can look forward to new carnival games, a bouncy house, a climbing wall, flower-pot painting, face-painting, garden games and live music. The petting zoo will be full of furry friends, and the bake sale table and sno-cone man will cover your sugar cravings. The always-popular cake-walk starts at 1:00, don’t miss out on that! To feed the hungry revelers, there will be pulled-pork sandwiches and slaw!
Its good fun for the whole family, so come on out and enjoy the day, Peralta style! Pass the word on to all your friends too.
