Palisades Elementary School’s annual PTA Carnival brought family fun to Capistrano Beach on April 17 while raising funds for field trips and other activities.
The event included games, bounce houses, cake walks, a silent auction and the Pooper Bowl—a field is divided into a grid, participants buy squares and then when a farm animal does its business in a square, the owner of that square wins $250. This year the “poopers” were a pig and a goat.
A color run—laps through a sprinkler followed by a dousing with colored tempera and corn starch—made for some rambunctious and messy fun.
