The PTO at Barrington Elementary School will present its 29th annual “Clown Around” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, at the school, 1780 Barrington Road.
The event features a “street fair” atmosphere with activities such as carnival games, inflatables and food. New to this year’s event will be a photo booth. For a few dollars, students can have keepsake photos taken with their friends. There will be a 50-50 raffle and a Dave and Buster’s street team will give away prizes.
Silent auction items will include autographed sports memorabilia, a Trek Bike, gift certificates, golf outings, a hot air balloon ride and a trip to Mexico.
Each year, Barrington teams with a local charitable organization. This year, they have partnered with Columbus Blue Jackets “Jackets for Jackets” program and the Pleasure Guild of Nationwide Children’s Hospital to collect gently-used coats and books.
During the week prior to Clown Around, coats of any size will be collected at the school, to be given to those in need. Books for any age will be collected for the patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Tickets for activities may be purchased at the event, which is open to the public.
