The fall season is in full swing and Kyrene de la Sierra Elementary School will be celebrating by hosting its fall festival tonight.

The event has been an ongoing yearly tradition at the school, 1122 E. Liberty Lane, where teachers and staff invite the Ahwatukee community to come out enjoy a night of entertainment from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

Liz Hill, Sierra’s PTO communications coordinator, said the event is similar to a carnival with an array of games kids can play. A photo area will also be present for families as well as a pumpkin walk.

“The pumpkin walk is where kids bring their carved pumpkins, with a battery-operated light, and the student council lines them up for people to see all the different designs,” Hill said.

The fall festival is free, but tickets to play the games will be at a set cost.

Hill said the money generated goes towards supporting the PTO to help sponsor different events throughout the remainder of the year.

Individuals interested in having unlimited access to all games can purchase a $15 wristband.

“It’s a way to have community enrichment by bringing the Sierra community and the Foothills community together, to have a fun event for our kids and it’s really a community builder,” Hill said. “Parents can also mingle together and meet different Sierra families in a good atmosphere.”
