Carnival will be held May 6th from 4-7pm.  We are just getting started with the planning, so if you would like to be a part of the fun, please email Jen at waysandmeans@millsparkpta.com


The carnival is not possible without all of our awesome parent volunteers. Sub-committees include: 

  • Decorations
  • Games & Prizes
  • Concessions
  • Ticket Sales
  • Silent Auction



Check out the silent auction donations so far... (this will be updated soon): 





The carnival is our major fundraiser each spring, helping to fund all the programs we have for our students, staff and families at MPE. It's also a time where MPE families can mingle and students can have fun. 





from the 2022 spring Carnival



What can you expect for carnival? Inflatables, a magician, face painters and more. Test out your aim and dunk your favorite teacher into a tank of water. This year we will also have a cartoonist who will be teaching students to draw. Details are being revealed every week via the Panther Press. Here's what we have so far.


The Basics. All children will need a wristband to enter, adults are free.  Wristbands allow access to tons of fun activities.  Need more fun?  We have you covered.  "Carnival Fun Tickets" will be available for special extras (see below).
The food truck lineup. Click on the food truck for their menu. 


What's included with admission. Music.  It just wouldn't be a party without music, and that's why DJ BENNII will be playing all the hits.  Everyone can work up an appetite by dancing!  And once you have a few songs stuck in your head (Baby Shark anyone?), go on our scavenger hunt for the chance to win a prize then check out inflatables from Inflate-A-Party. Swoosh down the giant slide or race against a friend in the inflatable obstacle course. There will also be a pirate ship inflatable for the younger ones as well as a toddler/preschool zone with chalk and bubbles. Too much excitement?  Grab a seat and catch one of two magic shows put on by Jim Thomas Magic or learn how to draw cartoons with published cartoonist Dave McDonald. Finally, many of our sponsors and silent auction donors will be on site with a fun activity for our families. 

How to use Fun Tickets. Fun Tickets are the "ticket" to extra fun and will be needed for the following extra experiences. 

  • The Melody Maker is returning to paint faces.
  • For a different type of body art, glitter tattoos are a new option.
  • In between shows, our magician will be making balloon animals.
  • There will be plenty of carnival games and prizes.
  • Try your hand at the newest game: inflatable axe throwing.
  • Tickets will get you a treat from the snack table and
  • three chances at the dunk booth. Who do you most want to dunk? The schedule will be in your carnival packet along with a map so you are sure not to miss anything.  

**Admission wristbands and fun tickets are available for purchase through your PTA account until April 21st.**
