Washington Country Fair Set for May 17
Thursday, May 15, 2014 • 8:40am
SUMMIT, NJ - Washington Elementary School's Country Fair has a new logo, and now it even has its own Official Day.
Featuring a variety of indoor and outdoor games, including bounce houses and a petting zoo, crafts, piñatas, a “cake walk,” and more, as well as the opportunity to win dozens of great prizes at the Silent and Tin Can Auctions, the Washington School Country Fair promises to be fun for kids of all ages, and will be held rain or shine.
This year’s Silent and Tin Can Auctions will offer items generously donated by local shops and skilled artisans as well as national companies. Vacation items, spa and fitness packages, theater tickets, golf foursomes, portrait sittings with professional photographers, and popular toys and games figure among the prizes.
The PTO organizes the Country Fair, with all proceeds benefiting Washington students, going towards valuable programs like Art in the Classroom, as well as special assemblies featuring such guests as the Newark Boys’ Choir.
