With the start of the school year rapidly approaching, local families can look forward to a day of fun at the first ever Education Foundation Fall Festival.
This event will take place on Sept. 21 at Millburn High School’s front lawn from 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. prior to the Millburn vs. Livingston high school football game at 2:30 p.m.
Families of all ages will enjoy games, rides, music, food, football and fun and have the opportunity to learn about the Education Foundation’s programs that support all of our schools with programming, technology and much more.
“The idea behind the Fall Festival is to welcome children of all ages and their parents into the Ed Foundation fold,” says the non-profit’s president, Amy Talbert. “While we’ve been successful with our events geared toward specific age groups, the Fall Festival provides us with an opportunity to gather as a community to support our schools and enjoy the day’s festivities. We hope this event inspires more residents to become members and get involved with our ongoing programs in the elementary, middle and high schools.”
Event attendees will enjoy music and entertainment by Millburn high school students including: 90 Slope, JaJo, Anya Parker-Lentz, and the MHS Dance Company. Further fun will be had at the many carnival games and rides for all ages including such hits as: bungee run, petting zoo, mechanical bull, rock wall climbing, human foosball, etc. Multiple food and refreshment vendors will satisfy all tastes.
Tickets are available for purchase now at edfoundationmillburnshorthills.org and at the event at the price of $20 for members (annual membership is $50) and $25 for non-members.
