Ferndale Schools held their annual All-District Fall Festival at Kennedy School in Oak Park on Oct. 12. Children and grown-ups of all ages packed the halls and lawn to enjoy various fall-themed activities. The Haunted Hallway had kids shrieking in delight, while others laughed joyfully in the bounce house, giant slide, and rock-climbing wall. Games had youngsters testing their skills in batting, throwing, and balloon-popping. Kids got fake tattoos, hair color and face painting and there was plenty of food and fun. The inexpensive event helped raise money for the schools, as did a table full of baskets put together with gifts from local businesses to be auctioned off. Parents and teachers volunteered to make the event special for the families.
