Franklin Fest is back! This time-honored event is a great way to connect with the entire Ben Franklin community! We hope you’ll join us for activities, food and games from 3 – 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30, at BFA. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of fun! There will be bounce houses and inflatables for all ages, a dunk tank, face painting, balloon artists, and the ever-popular CAKE WALK! The afternoon also will feature a signature appetizer from Urban Village Grill as well as salads and pizza (gluten-free and regular) from Parry’s Pizzeria! 

Tickets are on sale NOW through Friday, Sept. 22, via MySchoolBucks. Tickets are $15 per child, with a maximum of $40 for a family. Adults as well as siblings who do not attend BFA are FREE. Families who have completed and logged their recommended volunteer hours (30 hours per family or 15 hours per single parent household) for the current school year in Help Counter by midnight Monday, Sept. 22, will be given free admission to the event! 

We can’t make this event happen without our volunteers! Volunteers spend a little time helping, then can spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying the event with their family. We hope you’ll consider volunteering to help staff the event or donating a cake for the cake walk! Volunteering for Franklin Fest is a fantastic way to support these types of amazing community events and earn hours towards your recommended family totals.

Please contact Ewelina Chrzanowski, PTO social coordinator if you have any questions!
