This Saturday, June 2, Montecito Union School hosts its most popular event: the MUS Carnival! Hundreds of kids and their parents will descend on the MUS campus for an old-fashioned day of fun with rides, games, raffles, food, and entertainment.
The carnival will also have rides such as a Ferris wheel, a mechanical surf board, a train, a foam pit, two inflatable slides, an obstacle course, a double swing ride, a rock climbing wall, and others. Other activities include Skee-Ball, milk bottle toss, ring toss, face painting, fish bowl toss, lemonade stand, and fresh popped popcorn stand. Food vendors include California Pizza Kitchen, Dave’s Dogs gourmet hot dogs, ParadICE Shave Ice, and of course, the popular PTA bake sale will have homemade treats to enjoy. A raffle will include cameras, a bike, two VIP tickets to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Magic Mountain tickets, Disneyland tickets, and many other items.
All proceeds from the event, which is sponsored in part by Montecito Country Mart, go toward funding educational enrichment activities funded by the PTA, which funds Art at Lunch, Organic Garden Club, a Poet-in-Residence, and the Green Team, and purchases instruments for the music program and library materials, among other items.
Entrance is free, and there is free valet parking during the carnival; self-parking is available in the Upper Manning parking lot. Attendees can purchase wristbands for unlimited rides and games for $40 or buy individual tickets.
The annual carnival is from 10 am to 3 pm, at 385 San Ysidro Road. Check out www.montecitou.org for more information.
