Arlington’s Homecoming Carnival took place this past Sunday from 3-5pm. The community outreach event brought over a hundred families to Arlington High School’s football field to enjoy good food, fun games, and competitive obstacles. This carnival was a kickoff for the fun-packed week ahead. The dance, dress up days, and powderpuff game are just some of the things planned for this week’s homecoming fun.

This year was the first year Arlington has ever hosted a carnival event. Arlington High Schools first homecoming dance was last year meaning there wasn’t much room for adding in new traditions, instead only planning the new dance itself. However, this year Student Council, National Honors Society, Beta club, Blue Crew, Deca, and numerous other clubs and organizations worked tightly together with the community to pull off this event.

The overarching goal of the carnival was to be an event that reached the community. In efforts to meet this goal, the Homecoming Carnival was heavily promoted of different platforms for all ages and people to see. A large portion of the event like the games were to reach small children in efforts to get them looking forward to growing up to be a Tiger while another large portion targeted the adults, for example, the tasty food. This balanced combination of detail made it an event that could combine different crowds from the community and bring them together.

Many hours of hard work went into the carnival for it to be presented to the community. Senior, Luke McBride, who helped specifically with the Blue Crew explained, “It was really cool to see the town come together even with the late notice and pull off such a great event especially with it being the first year.” Luke McBride worked alongside senior Jaden Morales who is also a member of the Blue Crew. Morales described that the carnival brought together the community for many laughs and fun times. He also said, “The event was great for the children to get out of their shell and be competitive with a smile on their face surrounded by people they may or may not know.”
