Carnival Classic

Carnival Classic 2009 Coming to Memorial Park

Get ready to have some fun at the Helena Education Foundation’s Carnival Classic!  There will be activities, games, food, and great entertainment on the stage that can be seen and heard from all over Memorial Park.  The best part is that all of the school groups sponsoring an activity or food booth get to keep all of their proceeds!  This year the eighth annual Carnival Classic will be on Sunday, September 20, from 11am to 4pm

All of the Helena elementary schools and middle schools, many of the high school clubs and sports teams sponsor dozens of booths– from the ever-popular dunk tank, to the irresistible Jim Darcy petting zoo.  There will even be pony rides!  Try your luck at the doughnut eating contest, cake walk, ring toss and many other games and bounce around on the HEF-sponsored inflatables. Then cool off with refreshments in the food court! “Tumbling gnomes”, duck pond, plinko and hair painting will provide activities for even the youngest kids, while the hockey shoot, football toss, soccer activities, and basketball hoop shoot will challenge older kids.  And don’t worry about getting hungry– the Booster Clubs from HHS and CHS will have brauts, hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, tiger tacos and drinks for every age; lots of groups will be selling tasty treats like snow cones, cotton candy and popcorn.

Check out the many community information booths, climb on huge construction equipment, and enjoy the entertainment that will take place continuously on the band shell stage.   Check out the Helena Education Foundation Carnival Classic web site for details.  Or contact HEF at or (406) 443-2545 for more information.
