Chili, Santa, and Crafts as far as the eye can see.

On Saturday, November 21, Bullitt East held their third annual Fall Festival.

All of the proceeds made supported the biological summer expedition. Chris Ryan, biology teacher, organized the Fall Festival. “I like seeing community members come out and enjoy themselves and seeing the vendors do well from a financial standpoint,” said Ryan.

When asked about how much profit was made at the Fall Festival, Ryan said, “About $3400 or so. We had several things going on including chili lunch, Krispy Kreme sales, and booth rental ($40.00 each w/ exception of BE employees who had discounted $10.00 rates).”

“Attendance was hard to keep up with when you factor in the girls basketball games that were going on.  We are potentially breaking away from this date next year and looking to do a stand alone Fall Festival where tracking attendance will be more feasible.  Certainly several hundred attended, just not sure of an exact number. Many opted to not get in on the door prizes so our numbers ended up not being an accurate way to keep track,” said Ryan.

The Fall Festival had Arts and Crafts booths, 70 vendors, a pancake breakfast, pictures with Santa (senior, Noah Franklin), and a chili lunch. There was a silent auction as well as door prizes for guests.

Carrie Gary, Choir and HAVPA teacher, was in charge of the pictures with Santa. “I’m one of the headmasters for the Muneris house and our big project was the animal shelter and we collected stuff all week for the shelter,” said Gary.

“I thought it was fun and all the children and animals, it was crazy, my dog peed on the library floor, it was awesome,” said Gary.

Thor, the FFA goat, even got a picture with Santa. “I love it, I probably have 11 pictures with Thor,” said Gary.

Cole Stump, senior, volunteered at the Fall Festival. “My job was to help setup the Fall Festival, make sure all the vendors got everything they needed, worked door prizes, and then I helped put everything up,” said Stump, who is going on the trip.

For all students going on the Mexico trip, it was mandatory to work the Fall Festival.
