The annual Fun Fair provides an antidote for anyone looking to break their winter hibernation and get out of the house.

The annual Fun Fair provides an antidote for anyone looking to break their winter hibernation and get out of the house.

This year's event, sponsored by the Grandview K-3 and 4-8 PTOs, will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, in the Edison Intermediate/Middle School commons and gym.

"It's an event that offers fun for all ages," said Melissa Cribbs, who is co-chair of the Fun Fair with Mandy Taylor.

The Fun Fair includes games, crafts, food, baked goods, a raffle and silent auction.

"The great thing about the Fun Fair is that game tickets are still only 10 cents," Cribbs said.

Most of the popular games and activities, including the Bounce House, duck pond and basketball, will be returning, she said.

A new feature for middle school students will be the Betting Wheel.

Youngsters will be able to place their bets on a number and double their winnings if their choice comes up on the spin of the wheel.

"I think the middle school students will really get a kick out of the Betting Wheel," Cribbs said. "A lot of the other games are geared more for younger children and we wanted to come up with something for the middle school students."

The silent auction will include prizes donated by local businesses and the raffle will feature items donated by teachers, she said.

Raffle tickets will cost 25 cents each and the drawing will take place at about 1:45 p.m.

The Fun Fair has become a Grandview tradition, Cribbs said.

"I think everybody really looks forward to it," she said. "It's a chance to get out of the house after a long winter, even if the weather's not been so bad this year."

The event is not a fundraiser, but simply an event meant to be fun for all, Cribbs said.
