Cornwall Carnival

This is a family event usually held in March. The gym is transformed into the games area, with fun activities for all ages. There is a football toss, Plinko, face painting and fish game. The kids have a chance to win prizes of all sizes. There is also entertainment, sponsorship booths, silent auction/raffle and carnival food. It is a great event that provides additional funds to support field trips for all Cornwall students. Many volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks.
