With the spring football games approaching, the football team has decided to change the tradition this year by hosting the first spring game festival that will be held annually. The festival will be held at Max Goldsmith Stadium on Friday, May 25 and gates will open at 4 p.m. Fans and students will gather for the junior varsity game on the field at 4:30 p.m. and the varsity game at 7 p.m.

“It’s a celebration of the end of spring ball,” head football coach Michael Odle said. “It’s a community event to get our community together, our elementary kids to come and watch and participate.”

Similar to events held by other schools, such as Hebron High School, which have held spring festivals in the past, Odle hopes to strengthen his own community with the start of this new event.

“I’ve been to different places and have gotten ideas from others,” Odle said. “I’m [part of the] community. I’m from this town and I want to recognize our community.”

With dunk tanks, booth games and performances from the Farmerettes and cheer team, the spring game festival offers plenty of activities for both children and adults to enjoy. Food vendors such as Kona Ice, Tin Man Diner, Marco’s Pizza and Freddy’s will be at the festival.

“Several local vendors will be there promoting their products and providing games and giveaways for the kids,” football parent Sheila Mahoney said. “We also have face painting, a bounce house, obstacle course and a dunk tank where the kids can dunk Coach Odle, Mr. Kajs and other coaches and teachers.”

Multiple sports teams will be attending as well to provide activities and information to anyone who may be interested in the programs.

“So far, we have the baseball team, tennis team and girls’ basketball,” Mahoney said. “[And] the football boosters will be there selling spirit wear.”

Admission for the festival is free for everyone, excluding fees for food, concessions, the dunk tank and spirit wear.

“To have a game, even if it’s against each other, it feels good,” junior football player Amaeze Nwaemo said. “It reminds me of the season, just to go out there and play with my friends.”
