Adults were having as much fun as the children at the annual event.
Kaleb Purdue snapped a selfie of himself and the Chick-fil-A mascot cow, Shayleigha Cooper flew a drone for the first time, and Principal Marcus Sanfilippo and Coach Cathy Zanella spent most of the night being dunked in a cold tub of water.
The annual Fall Festival at Bunnell Elementary on Friday, Oct. 28, was definitely a family affair. Inside and outside the gymnasium there were games to play, candy and toys to win, and so many people to see.
Sanfilippo and Zanella switched off in the dunk tank chair, to accommodate the nearly continuous line. Younger students, who might not have the pitcher’s arm to hit the target, were often lifted up to the metal button by student Grayson Blanchard, so they could push it with their hand and send the adults plunging into the cold water. A few shivers but no hard feelings, as the crowd encouraged the youngsters.
The Brito family all got into the Halloween spirit by dressing up. Cristiano was Spiderman, his sister Carina dressed as Robin Hood, while dad Steve was the Hulk, and mom Michelle was Batwoman.
It was an evening to have fun with family, friends, and classmates.
