Besides all the fun and games, the fair will feature a kids costume contests. Children from age 0 to 12-years-old are welcome to participate in the competition.
“The Fall Festival provides a fun and interactive alternative to Halloween and it provides our students, their families, as well as the community with a safe environment for everyone to have fun,” explained Andrea Portillo, EPCC SGA President, to the El Paso Harold Post.
“This is more for the community and for our local students that are on different campuses,” said Parliamentarian of the Student Government Association Frances Lamboy. “Fifty of our clubs are going to be participating, to make sure that all the kids and all their parents; and the community in this area of El Paso have a good time.”
The clubs helping with the event will be fundraising for their future activities while helping the community have a great time.
“The fundraising is for purposes like their educational trips,” explained Lamboy. “Some clubs will go out-of-state, and some of them will go international.”
“Me, my associates from the Student Government Association and the ambassadors of EPCC, we’re all working together to make this activity real fun for everyone.” Lamboy added.
