The nights are longer, the skies- cloudier. You can almost hear the sound of witches laughing while flying on their brooms; This can only mean one thing, its Halloween!
With that comes Harvest Fest, the biggest, most popular event of the school year. It’s the time of year when everyone in school gathers and has a blast together.
There are plenty of fun things to do at Harvest fest, anything from a haunted house, to racing robots with the engineers. Make a mental list and try to do as much as possible.
Harvest Fest has a plethora of things that you can do. First off, there are all the clubs that are selling food and drinks and snacks. Then there are all the little events like Key Club doing henna and NHS piing people in the face.
“My favorite part of Harvest Fest has to be the amount of fun and different thing that the clubs offer,” said Nomar Marquez, a sophomore in the Entrepreneurship academy.
This is a school dance; so don’t act the way you wouldn’t act in school. Don’t dance in a way you wouldn’t want your family or teachers to see; If you are seen dancing like that, you will be kicked out of the dance. Just jump around and dance, have a blast!
Remember, if you don’t have a date to Harvest Fest, there’s no problem! Going with a group of friends is a blast and it’s just as fun as, or even better than, going with a date.
What you wear at harvest fest does NOT define who you are, wear whatever you want! You don’t have to over dress, its not formal. However, you also don’t want to under dress.
Okay, well maybe not WHATEVER you want. Make sure to wear something school appropriate, you are still at school around teachers. Regardless of the fact that there isn’t a specific dress code, you should still try to keep it classy.
Don’t forget to take a lot of pictures! This is not an event you want to forget, especially if it’s your freshman year. This is one of those events that you’ll compare every year to the last. It’s a great way to see how you evolve and grow as an individual.
“The best part of Harvest Fest has to be the Music, it’s always so great. I love the experience itself; I love being able to spend time with my friends and have an amazing time,” said Nathaly Santos a junior in the Health academy.
