The event will feature old fashioned carnival games, inflatables, a climbing wall, face-painting, community booths, a silent auction, student performances, and great hands-on activities. There will be delicious food, including hot boiled crawfish and pulled pork plates, handmade tostadas, hamburgers, hot dogs, and baked goods, along with beverages for all ages.
Proceeds from the Feria will be used to support play activities at the school’s temporary Esplanade location, and to help build the playground for the school’s brand new state of the art school facility in Mid City (site of former Fisk Howard Elementary School, Cleveland Avenue at South Rendon,) where construction is scheduled to be complete in December of this year.
