Fall Festival marching band fundraiser features haunted house


Maricopa children and adults have an opportunity to celebrate Halloween and raise funds for the Maricopa High School Marching Rams at the same time.

On Saturday, Oct. 30, fun for all ages will be provided in the form of games, vendors, a kids’ corner, food, pony rides, a costume contest and a Haunted House at the band and band boosters’ first Fall Festival.

The event is scheduled from 4 to 10 p.m. at the high school, 45012 W. Honeycutt Ave.

“This fundraising opportunity helps support the student band club as well as the boosters to purchase new instruments, repair older instruments and help fund trips to other high school for competitions,” said band booster president Kim Gaunt.

The MHS marching band came home victorious from its last competition on Oct. 9, taking outstanding in the following categories: percussion, auxiliary (color guard), visual performance and effect. These ratings helped qualify the Marching Rams for state competition at Aqua Fria High School on Oct. 23.

“Band students and parents are excited to invite our community to our first Fall Festival and Haunted House,” Gaunt said.
