Fall air greeted frolicking children weaving through crowds of people gathered to celebrate Battle Rock Charter School’s carnival at Montezuma Park Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.
Several children showed off their Halloween costumes. Families were invited to participate in games and win prizes while live music drifted through the park. Several booths featured spinning prize wheels, and other attractions included a cake walk, bean bag tosses and different exhibits on display.
There were plenty of baked goods and other food options to go around, including Navajo tacos.
The event was inspired by the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904, where McElmo peaches won a first-place prize, putting Gold Medal Orchard on the map.
WildEdge Brewing Collective donated $1 to the charter elementary school for every pint of Monkey Wrench Pale Ale sold between 3 and 8 p.m. at the brewery.
