HOLMES BEACH – The Anna Maria Elementary School Fall Festival will feature a costume contest, haunted house and a parade on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Students will gather in costume at 9:30 a.m. at Anna Maria City Pier Park, where their costumes will be judged for prizes at 9:45 a.m. The kids will then march with their class banners to The Center of Anna Maria Island for the festival.

The theme for the haunted house is “Haunted Toy Shop,” with a crazy shopkeeper as the guide. Puppets, creepy dolls and toys will come to life and there will be a crazy laboratory that is all aglow with evil potions.

Wristbands for unlimited games and activities, excluding the haunted house, will be $15 for the first child with a $5 discount for each additional child in that family. Haunted house tickets are $3, or two for $5. The wristbands will also include five additional tickets for food or drinks.

The fundraiser for the PTO is being organized by Lisa Coba and team. For more information, call the school at 941-708-5525.
