I saw this article written by Russ Lay for the Outer Banks Voice and thought you may be interested in this great event happening this Saturday. If you are looking for something to do, check it out!

This Saturday, if the weather prognosticators are correct, promises to be picture-perfect in coastal Carolina –a great chance to get out of the house and enjoy a real fall day after some unseasonably warm weather.

We’re expecting sunshine, a high of 61 and mild winds. Which adds up to a fine day for the Falcons of Kitty Hawk Elementary School to hold their 57th annual Fall Carnival.

Things kick off at 8 a.m. when The OBX Running Company holds three different “Flying Falcon” events, starting with a quarter-mile race kicks. At 8:10 a.m., two races will start simultaneously — 1-mile and a 2-mile competition.

Registration and other race information is available at

At 10 a.m. the carnival opens the gates to the racers and the general public and the real fun begins.

The KHES Fall Carnival has been with us for almost six decades for one reason: It has remained true to the traditional school carnival tradition.

Sure, some of the featured activities have been updated. This year there is an American Ninja Warrior-style bouncy course composed of giant spheres. Instead of a mechanical bull, attendees can choose to be thrown off of a mechanical shark. You’ll have a chance to drench faculty members in a falling balloon version of the old school dunking booth.

There’s more. Cake walks. A live radio remote with Beach 104’s Christian Benedi, who will stay on after his radio stint and DJ for the remainder of the event. More food from Tropical Smoothie, Tubbs Hotdogs, Little Caesars and the usual homegrown fare — snowballs, and for-real movie theater popcorn from R/C Cinemas in Kill Devil Hills.

We can’t emphasize enough that the longevity of this event and the incredible attendance (take our word for it!).
