Student Community Association Fair Returns

The 71st Annual SCA Fair is quickly approaching! This year, the SCA Fair will be held on May 4th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., with a rain date of May 5th, at Munsey Park Elementary School. The SCA Fair is one of the most anticipated days of the year for the families of Manhasset. Filled with thrilling rides, delicious food and a wonderful community atmosphere, it is always a special day for our town.
The SCA Fair rides include fun for all ages. From the carousel for the little kids, to the fifty foot drop for daring kids, there is an attraction for everyone. See if you can handle the spinning “alien abduction” or take in the views of Munsey Park from the Ferris wheel. Race your friends down the “super slide” or try your luck to win a giant stuffed animal at one of the carnival games.
In addition to rides and games, the fair will feature all kinds of cuisine from the typical carnival food like cotton candy and hot dogs, to gyros at the Greek Tent. For something sweet, check out the bakery and candy tents, staffed by volunteers from the community.
Show your Manhasset spirit by supporting the Manhasset Soccer and the Booster Club by purchasing spiritwear. Other vendors will be selling merchandise, and the plant sale is a great place to purchase spring flowers.
If you need a break from the rides and games, take a seat on the bleachers in front of the stage where various entertainment acts will be performing during the day. Entertainment acts include the Munsey Park and Shelter Rock Jazz Bands and Chamber Orchestras, as well as music groups from the Secondary School.
The Fair is the SCA’s largest fundraiser. Funds raised through the SCA go directly back into the school, supporting programs like Extended Extras, Saturday Series and field trips for every grade. In addition to attending the Fair, please consider volunteering or contributing to a journal ad. Volunteering is a fun way to have hands-on involvement with the Fair. Volunteers are needed for set up prior to May 4th, as well as on the day of the fair.
If you are not able to volunteer or attend, please consider sponsoring a ride or booth, or purchasing a journal ad. The SCA depends on involvement from the whole community to be successful! All of the money raised helps children in our school district. Please visit or e-mail [email protected] for information on volunteering and sponsoring a ride or booth,
The SCA looks forward to the continued support from the community, parents and students. Get ready for this fun event on May 4th!
