Lms_savethedate_2The Tradition Continues
Lamar Middle School will hold its annual fall festival, Lamar Fest, on Friday, October 24. The festival will be at Lamar Middle School from 6 to 9 p.m. Current, previous, and future Lamar students, their families and friends, as well as neighbors and community members are all invited to join the fun! This year’s festival promises an exciting evening of food, games, live music, and so much more!

Got game? If your competitive streak gets the best of you, try out the Amazon Extreme Obstacle Course, a new game featured at this year’s Lamar Fest. This race challenges two contestants to overcome menacing obstacles to reach the finish line first. If that doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, take out your frustrations at the Car Bash or the Equalizer Tug-of-War. Need something a little more calm? Take a ride on the 27-foot giant slide, join the Pringle or soda toss, or take a stroll at the cake or stuffed animal walks.

Live music – Lamar Fest 2008 has it! Come out and enjoy live music by, you guessed it, Lamar teachers! Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime musical event! McCallum and Lamar student bands will also be rockin’ the festival crowd. Need I say more?

What‒s a festival without great food? This year we have some new items including Frito pie, Jim-Jims, and bean and cheese tacos for the vegetarians out there. But, we didn’t forget all the old favorites like tacos, pizza, hot dogs, pickles, pretzels, ice cream, and candy.

Before the night ends, be sure to dunk your favorite teacher in the dunking booth, pick up some bling at the BlingBling booth, have your hair painted, or grab your friends for a photo in the photo booth.

Tickets are 50 cents each and go on sale during lunch at Lamar Middle School on Thursday, October 23, and Friday, October 24, and continue into the evening at the festival. Show your school spirit with a “Go Lamar Dawgs!” wristband, also on sale during lunch and at the festival.

There’€™s something for everyone at Lamar Fest 2008. We hope you will come out to support your middle school and join in the fun!
