Mardi Gras Festival

Mardi Gras Festival
The Harvest Festival was our school's annual major fundraising event that takes place in the fall. The festival has been reimagined for 2024 and will now take place in February as Mardi Gras Festival. This campus event includes carnival rides, game booths, food, entertainment tent, Big Red Raffle and silent auction.
