This year’s BSE Carnival’s birthday bash was another massive success last Friday, with over 1400 attendees enjoying a glorious spring evening on the Slope.
To celebrate Bonny Slope’s birthday, the DJ kicked off the cupcake distribution to the school-wide tune of "Happy Birthday." Mrs. Maza and Mrs. Montelongo helped volunteers pass out 1,000 cupcakes, all of which were devoured.
The celebration included all the usual suspects– inflatables, food carts, games and prizes, a DJ, photo booth, and tattoo artist. The lollipop tree was also hugely popular and the Snack Shack rocked its sales (as always), with otter pops coming in for the win as the most sold item. Sunset students were out in force to manage the games and prizes, allowing more parents to spend the evening with their children.
The annual 5th Grade Pie Eating Contest marked another milestone for our about-to-depart students. Joe Santos expertly yielded the microphone as the event's Master of Ceremonies, keeping contestants and spectators informed of the rules (no hands!) and overall progress. A solid set of semi-finalists and the ultimate champ, Sam G., took home DQ gift cards. Congrats to all the contestants and parent organizers!
Huge thanks Carnival chairs, Kirsten Forsberg and Reilley Keating for taking on this annual BSE tradition. They are grateful to previous Carnival chairs, Debbie Heron and Elizabeth Bingold, for doing such an amazing job transitioning this committee.
Thanks is also due to so many parents who stepped up and filled the volunteer needs, from decor and signage, passing out the cupcakes, manning the inflatables, as well as set-up and clean-up in the gym, most especially Erik & Nadia Wald, Mike & Molly Lampros, Debbie Herron & Ryan Josephson, Ryan Johnson, and the BSCO Board.
The 2018 Carnival was free to the Bonny Slope community due to the incredible fundraising effort of the last several years.
