Lots of fun was had at Fort Christian's annual school carnival.
 
On Friday (September 22), the gymnasium was filled with students and their families.
 
They were able to take part in a number of activites, including games, a photobooth and throwing pies in teachers' faces.
 
The event has been put on every year for over 14 years.
 
"We do this every Fall," said Dave Armbruster, the principal of Fort Saskatchewan Christian School. "It's just a wonderful event for families to come together, our students love it."
 
At each station, students gathered points which they could then redeem for prizes. Snacks were available for the price of a small donation.
 
Grade 9 students were also given a leadership opportunity by being tasked with running a few events.
 
"It's an opportunity for new families to meet others and also just a great time to be together as a school community," added Armbruster.
