The boombox is blaring on the blacktop, hot dogs and burgers are on the grill, and the school parking lot is filling up. Luckily, the recent heat wave has subsided for an evening.

The annual KCC Carnival, hosted by the senior class, took place on Sept 14. The money made from the event is going toward the senior class mission trip to Trinidad.

With carnival classics like moon bounces, plinko, and a dunk tank, the carnival kicks off the school’s fall events.

One of the most popular stands at the carnival was the cotton candy machine. This booth was run by seniors Elisa Davis and Rachel Rietveld, as well as Rietveld’s mother, Rebecca. In order to get the cotton candy out of the machine, Rebecca Rietveld had to stand on a stool to reach above the tall dome of the cotton candy maker.

“It was really funny because Mrs. Rietveld had cotton candy in her hair by the end of the carnival,” Davis said.

Other activities included croquet, a treasure chest, water balloon toss,  cake walk, and bake sale. Attendees were able to purchase tickets for 50 cents each or buy an unlimited wristband for $25.

“I thought it was set up well and there was a pretty good turnout,” junior Jake Fields said. Fields lended a helping hand by stepping in for a senior unable to attend and selling entertainment books.

“I liked being able to help the senior class,” Fields said. “I sold two entertainment books!”

It is tradition at the KCC Carnival to fill the dunk tank with teachers and administrators. This year Bible teacher Allan Chugg, history teacher Chad Pirotte, elementary principal Andrew Cangelose, athletic director Josh Poteet and facilities/maintenance manager Jim Carroll experienced the thrill of the dunk tank.

“It was hilarious to see Mr. Chugg in the dunk tank because he was taunting the kids,” senior Keana Ko said. “It was fun to see him be goofy.”

Chugg wasn’t the only one who was entertaining in the dunk tank.

“I liked watching Poteet get knocked into the dunk tank,” freshman Andrew Sotelo said. “His face before he fell in was priceless.”
