The Goddard Fall Festival is Coming to Town
The Goddard Fall Festival is coming to town September 30 and October 1. It will be located all around Goddard with all sorts of fun. The Fall Festival will include a carnival, parade, and contests for all sorts of ages. Some of our own students and teachers will be marching in the parade.
“I am excited for the carnival games and the parade,” said Caeleigh Lancaster, freshman.
On Friday, there will be a Lions Kitchen, carnival, and Bingo. It all starts at 5 p.m. and starts the weekend off with all sorts of games. The carnival will be Friday and Saturday. On Friday, it goes until midnight and Saturday, the carnival will start at 6:30 a.m. till midnight. There will be over 20 different games and activities happening day and night.
“Last year, my family and I went to the festival because we wanted to do something fun around town,” said Destiney Tredway, Sophomore.
The parade starts at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. The line-up will start on 1st and Walnut and end at Discovery Intermediate School Parking Lot. The Drama club, Marching Band, and Cheerleaders will be some of the groups from Goddard High that will be in the parade. The Drama Club is still looking at a float.
“We will need a float or we’ll have to walk like last year, which was horrible, and it would be fun to decorate a float,” said Mrs. Jamie Oettle, theatre and dance teacher.
The Car Show starts at 12 p.m. and will go until 4 p.m. It will be located on 2nd and Main Street. The Color Run will start at 6pm and will have a 1 mile run and a 5k. The 1 mile run will be $10 to participate and the 5k will be $15 to $30. The Runs start on 201 S. Main and go down Linear Trail. All proceeds will go to the Goddard Education Foundation.
“Last year, the car show had some amazing cars, all different types, even my favorite sports cars,” said Lancaster.
Students have enjoyed their time at the festival and will be going back this year. Whether it was because of the games or because the students walked in the parade, it started their fall season off with a wonderful start.
“I am looking forward to going this year and have an amazing time like last year.” said Tredway.
