Booths were set up, entertainment was provided as well as a special guest appearance by Deputy Barney Fife Woods from Fort Payne.
The Judgment House was held this year at Ragland First Baptist Church.
PTO vice president Tammy Phillips said the festival was a huge success.
“I am so thankful for everyone who turned out,” Phillips said. “The proceeds made will go into the classrooms to help the teachers and students. Entertainment was fabulous, and I appreciate all of the people who helped run booths. We had a lot of participation with parents, and our go-to moms were wonderful. We also received a lot of help from some of the PTO dads. The guy who was Barney Fife was a huge hit. Adults and kids enjoyed meeting him and having their picture made with him. Everyone loved him.”
The festival was set up in a different location this year, and Phillips said the venue was perfect.
“All of the booths were set up behind the Ragland Elementary School gym,” Phillips said. “We were more confined this year, and it was not as spread out. It was just better this year. I’ve talked to several people who said they liked the way we had it set up. I could stand in any spot and see every one of the booths.”
PTO treasurer Connie Ford agreed with Phillips, saying she really liked the location.
“This is the first time we’ve ever had the Fall Festival in this area of the school, and it worked perfectly,” Ford said. “The fall festival has been the PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year for the past three years and it continues to be so.”
