Richmond Beach Community Association’s 32nd annual Halloween Carnival is a timeless tradition in our community. Each year brings back traditional carnival games with prizes, inflatables, haunted house, raffle and food. As far as old-fashioned carnivals go, this one is truly exceptional! This year’s carnival is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Syre Elementary School. Kids with special needs and their families will have the gym to themselves for one hour from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Richmond Beach gear will be available for purchase. Choose from t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, note cards, kitchen items and miscellaneous trinkets. It’s not too early to start shopping for Christmas!
Volunteering is part of the culture in Richmond Beach. It’s just what we do because we care about the bonds that strengthen our neighborhood, and we take pride in our community. Very few neighborhoods have that kind of community spirit.
The chairs for games and prizes are resigning after this year. Replacement volunteers are needed to shadow them this year and take over next year. Join the committee of enthusiastic volunteers who work together to make this fun event a reality each year for youngsters in our community! Contact Sheri Ashleman at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to say "count me in"!
We also need adult volunteers to help move props/games to and from the storage unit and to help construct and tear down the haunted house. Follow this link to sign up to help with these tasks.
Well over a hundred volunteers are required to successfully run the carnival. At least one adult with a helper is required for each shift at each amusement plus a number of volunteers are needed to help set up and clean up. Youth are encouraged to volunteer with an adult to supervise, and community service hours can be earned by high school students. If you plan to attend the carnival, please consider spending part of your time enjoying the games and other attractions with your family and the other half volunteering as a family or by yourself.
