Halloween Carnival

The Halloween Carnival is a longstanding tradition for Richland Elementary School and has been running strong for over 30 years.  It is one of the biggest community building events and fundraisers for the school.   Students are able to dress up in their costumes and come to school to spend the day with their family and friends while playing fun games, participating in a costume parade and contest, performing their VAPA routines and, this year,  getting the chance to dump a bucket of water on their favorite teacher.  There will be a raffle, game booths, food vendors, non-food vendors, a DJ, a stage with entertainment, a golf ball drop and more. 


This page is your portal to all things Halloween Carnival related! We will be meeting periodically to discuss and plan the carnival.  Attending a meeting is a great time to learn where were are in the planning process and what you can do to help.  If you are unable to attend view the meeting minutes by clicking the link below. 

Costume Drive 

October 7th - 18th

We will be accepting new or gently used costumes in adult, child and baby sizes for the Costume Drive from October 7th-18th.  Please deliver costumes to your student's classroom or to Mrs. Stevens in Room 8.  Stay tuned for details about the costume sale! 

Golf Ball Drop
October 26th, 2019

3:00 pm

Every year we sell golf balls for $5.00 each.  During the Carnival our local Fire station comes and drops the balls from the top of their ladder.  Whichever ball gets closest to the target wins that years offered prize.  This year the closest ball to the target will win 2 tickets to Disneyland.  Click the link below to join in the fun.


With live entertainment from your very own mustangs, local programs, dance studios and music and announcements from Fire By Night, we've got the day jammed packed for you. An updated schedule of entertainment will be posted below as it becomes available.
