Talented Kids, Talented Parents,
Rainworth State School don't have fetes. They hold an annual Rainbow Carnival. What a great idea. Who doesn't love rainbows?
Offering activities and stalls to suit everyone in the family, this year's carnival will again boast an array of popular carnival stalwarts: Cakes and Baked Goods Stall - freshly baked and packaged for you to take home or eat as you browse! Gourmet Stall - jams, preserves, butters, chutneys, tapenades... Yum! Handmade Stall - taking on a retro theme this year, view the Handmade blog for a peek at what will be available.
How cool are these?
Sweet Treats - the name says it all. Fudge, toffee, salted caramel, peanut brittle, coconut ice, rocky road and more. It's a sweet-tooth's paradise! Let me at it. Pre-loved Children's Clothing and Toys - perfect place to grab a bargain.
Book Stall - grab a great read and save! DVDs and good-quality books for all members of the family.
Hoopla Stall - popular with the kids as it's their chance to win a bottle of soft drink.
Pocket Money Stall - the kids love this one! Show Bags galore and the best place to get a lot for a little.
Adult Bottles Stall - wine, champagne, beer, spirits, liqueurs... buy a ticket and see what your number scores (adult-only stall).
Face Painting - talented senior students and parents put their artistic skills to use to brighten up the children's already happy faces!
Lovely head bands for the ladies.
Get your Minecraft Keyring.
Wheelbarrow Raffle - Win a Father's Day gift.
And to feed the starving there will be burgers, sausages and sushi
at the Rainbow Cafe. Sit down and enjoy a coffee / tea or delicious cakes, biscuits, muffins, cupcakes, sandwiches, sno cones and fairy floss. The Carnival Bar serves alcoholic beverages. And local musicians will provide entertainment.
There are obviously some talented parents at Rainworth.
All Day passes are also available to purchase on Carnival Day at $40 per child. Individual rides will vary between $5 and $7.
The Rainbow Carnival stage will feature the Rainbow Singers and other acts. The highlight will be seeing the fabulous finalists of Rainworth's Got Talent. A well as singers, dancers, musicians and poets, you can be amazed by a magician and impressed by a 7 year old mime.
