Pace Academy invites the entire community to celebrate the 50th Annual Fall Fair Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To showcase the exciting future of the campus, including the addition of the Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School, Pace invites the entire community to RAISE THE ROOF! in celebration of the school's past, present and future.
The 2013 Fall Fair may look a little different than in previous years due to construction, but that won't stop the fun! The school will utilize the lower school playground, Boyd Gym, the Inman Center, the front lawn of the Castle and the new Pace Mountain to accommodate events typically held on the back field. RAISE THE ROOF! attractions will include laser tag, karaoke, inflatables, bungee jumps, carnival games for all ages and much more. In addition to a variety of activities, Pace Academy’s Fall Fair will offer delicious food and refreshments. Participating food vendors include King of Pops, the Yumbii food truck, Chick-Fil-A, Al's Frozen Treats, Sweet Auburn BBQ and many more.
"The partnership between parents and school is the secret to our success,” says Headmaster Fred Assaf. “Our Parents Club raises money through this fair to support teachers and students in the classroom. It's a wonderful community fun raiser and fundraiser."
