Barkley Bridge Elementary School will host its annual Winterfest as a school fundraiser on Sat., Feb. 2, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event will feature a wide variety of fun-filled, carnival-type games for all ages. They will include an inflatable super slide, a cupcake and a book walk and a real clown making balloon animals for the kids.

The cafeteria will be serving food. Featured items include pizza, nachos, pickles, drinks and homemade desserts.

Other attractions will include a homemade cake auction, class basket auction and teacher item auctions.

The class baskets are especially attractive. For example, one of them contains an Apple I pad and another has a signed Nick Saban football.

Auction items offered by the teachers are also interesting and creative. They include: Be a kindergarten teacher for a day with Mrs. Matson; Your choice to attend a Huntsville Stars baseball game or Huntsville Havoc hockey game with Mr. Waynick; You and a friend will hike and picnic at Hurricane Creek Park with Mrs. Zuck; You and a friend will visit the Nashville Zoo and dine at the Rain Forest Café with Mrs. Spurlin.
