Midlothian’s Fall Festival has come and gone for 2019, but Midlothian High School is set to take up the autumnal celebratory baton with its Fall Carnival for all MISD pre-secondary schoolchildren on Saturday.

The MHS Student Council will hold its annual carnival from 1 to 4 p.m. at the MHS cafeteria at 923 East 9th Street. Family and friends are invited for an event that will include games, costume contests, face painting, a haunted hallway for grades 6-8 only, and more.

MHS Student Council president Kalia Carmichael said this is one of the fundraisers that her team does every year and has been doing for the past 4 years.

The carnival is open to all middle school and elementary students and their parents. Tickets will be sold at the door for minute-to-win-it games, face painting, concessions, and a small photo booth for parents to take pictures of their kids.

New this year is a haunted hallway, which is only made available to grades 6-8. Costumes are welcome but the Student Council advises caution to be modest — no fake blood, weapons, make-up or masks that cover the entire face, etc. There will also be a costume contest for best dressed in the elementary and middle school divisions.
