FARMINGTON — The atmosphere at Cascade Brook School was joyful and lighthearted as students, staff and community members celebrated Fall Festival on Friday, Oct. 12.

Students spent the afternoon taking part in carnival-like activities such as face painting, juggling, musical chair, games and more. There were fire trucks and police trucks for children to explore, rabbits to hold, and goats to pet.

Nick Bell, 10, of Farmington said, “My favorite part was holding the bunnies.”

It was a statement many participants agreed with.

The festival was held to encourage and reward good behavior, said teacher Darlene Nelson.

“This is a celebration of good behavior and it is fun for the staff. The festival is a positive way to kick of the new year,” Nelson said.
