Each wristband comes with a carnival spirit stick, and a prize lanyard, which will be stamped after playing games, and then redeemed at the prize booth for prizes.
Raffle tickets are $1 for 1 ticket, or $20 for 25 tickets. Order ahead on our e-store so that you can fill them out at home. They can be purchased at the carnival, too. Take a look at some of the amazing baskets we'll have. There will be 40 baskets up for raffle, each donated by the parents of Reagan classes! You'll find the basket raffle in the MPR at the carnival. Be sure to get your tickets in the boxes of the baskets you hope to win by 5:30pm, which is the end of the raffle. You do not need to be present to win.
Around 65 local businesses have generously donated their goods to our auction! There are too many to list here, but you can find details with links to the businesses on our silent auction page. The auction will be located this year in the MPR. Be sure to write your bids down by the end of the auction at 5:30. You do not need to be present to win. If you win, you can pay by cash, credit card, or check at the carnival, or later when we contact you.
