Tis the season for Fall festivals, corn mazes, pumpkin patches and Spooky Bingo. Fall gives us an excuse to indulge in all things that are pumpkin with a huge anticipation of Halloween and seeing the children dressed in their favorite costumes.
Spooky Bingo is that special time where we have a chance to mix an awesome game of bingo with the spirit of Halloween. The Student Council sponsors the event at my son’s school year every year. Spooky Bingo is a tradition that the parents, students, and staff look forward to every Fall season.
The students participate in a Halloween costume contest with prizes for: Most Heroic, Scariest, Funniest, Best Original, Sweetest, and Best Overall. The parents purchase bingo cards, snacks, pizza, and more!
The children really stretch their imagination during the costume contests. But, the judges always seem to find a deserving winner for each amazing category.
The students play four games of Bingo, with the first game beginning at the start of the event. This is the time when the competitive spirit of everyone really fills the atmosphere, when each number and letter is being called out, you can hear a pin drop in the room.
Until that final moment when you hear someone yell out “BINGO!”
