2016 Annual Holiday Extravaganza (Craft Fair) Recap

The first annual Fairmount Park Holiday Extravaganza took place yesterday evening. Loads of children and families attended to sell hand made goods and purchase jewelry, crafts, and sweet treats. The cafeteria was filled to capacity and eager merchants set up shop in the courtyard. The weather held and a grand time was had by all.

Congratulations to all our budding entrepreneurs who were able to put their creative skills to work, connect with buyers, and make the Holiday Extravaganza a success. A special thank you to everyone who contributed to making this event a success.

Ms. Chow, Ms. Gano, Ms. McChesney, and the School Spirit Team have been hard at work planning a spectacular Lunar New Year Celebration, which will include Trays of Togetherness, ribbon dancing, face painting, awesome art stations, and performances by the Franklin High School Lion Dance Team and the extracurricular enrichment karate class.

Dana Varon has coordinated a mouth-watering line-up of food trucks for the event: Chopstixmobile (Asian fusion), Wicked Pies (pizza), and Curb Jumper Street Eats (sliders) will be parked on Findlay. Happy New Year, Falcons!


During Chinese New Year, guests are o ered an assortment of treats from a Tray of Togetherness (chuen-hop) – a tray filled with
an assortment of symbolic foods to begin the New Year. Our trays will feature some traditional foods (red melon seeds for happiness,
candied melon for health, kumquats for prosperity), but other easy snacks as well. Families are invited to contribute dried fruit,
mandarins, kumquats and other easy to eat healthy snacks (no nuts please!). Please leave any contributions in the front office in the box marked Lunar New Year Monday through Wednesday of next week. We’d also love to borrow any sectioned trays!

There are lots of opportunities to help out with Arts and Crafts Tables and pre-event materials preparation. Help is also needed for set-up and clean-up. Please click here to sign up.
