We will be hosting a scrumdiddlyumptious Willy Wonka themed fall festival, WonkaFest, Saturday, October 27 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at The Sportsplex!  WonkaFest is a free event the whole family will enjoy. There will be several fun activities for everyone to participate in, concession stands, vendor booths from local and area businesses, and a sweet shop.

There will be a costume contest at the beginning of the event, starting at 10:00 am. There will be three categories: 0-3 years old, 4-12 years old, and family/group (three or more people). The first-place winner in each category will receive a cash prize of $100! Several other carnival-style games will be available for children to play. Winning the games will give players a chance of either winning a prize or a mark towards receiving a Golden Ticket. Golden tickets can be redeemed for BINGO cards. Several fabulous prizes will be available for those participating in the BINGO game from designer bags, to bicycles, and more! There will also be a sweet shop set up in the Klondike Academy daycare center where attendees can purchase confections from local bakers and confectioners or fill grab-bags with free candy and sweets.

All proceeds will be donated to benefit Nash Elementary School. If anyone is interested in attending WonkaFest, you can RSVP on the event on The Plex’s Facebook page. This is going to be a fun event, and we can’t wait to see everyone there!
