Participants had a chance to enter a cakewalk or, they could use their tickets to stick other children in the carnival’s jail for seven minutes.

For $1, they could try their hand at “Peg the Principal,” and test their aim with a dodgeball against Trisha Harris.

Harris said this is the second year for the carnival and that the event is organized by the parent teacher organization and faculty volunteers.
