In celebration of the end of standardized exams and the approaching summer, the second annual Summer Fest will take place on June 1 at the stadium field and back parking lot.

That Friday, the school will alter its bell schedule to having it in the order of W2, W8, W6, W4. Summer Fest will begin at 2:00 during W4 and will end at 5:30.

Tickets will continue to be sold during all lunches. Prices for the events will be $6 for Summer Fest, $8 for Summer Craze and $10 for both. Tickets will also be sold at the door.

Only students who buy pre-sale tickets will be permitted to attend Summer Fest during W4.

This will be the second year AHS Leadership has held Summer Fest after the festival’s success from the previous year.

Similar to last year, the festival will include inflatable slides, an obstacle course, basketball, corn hole and competitions for prizes every half hour. In addition, students who purchase their tickets during lunch will have the opportunity to nominate students to participate in the dunk tank.

Last year’s nominees included Tim Thomas, Derek Sweet and Scherrie Dalton. However, it is yet to be determined which teachers will be dunked for this year’s upcoming event.

In addition, Leadership will invite locally known food trucks such as Scoops2U, Angry Burger and El Fuego.

There will also be musical performances from students who audition at selected times during the festival.

The second part of the festival this year will be the newest addition, Summer Craze.

This new event will occur after the festival from 7:00 to 10:00 in the back parking lot. Summer Craze will be an outdoor dance with music and decorated neon lights.

Only students from AHS are permitted to attend the dance, while Summer Fest itself is open to the community.

Leadership looks to make this another enjoyable and successful festival that is open to students, staff and the community.

    Last year there was a opening parade in the early afternoon 1pm or 2pm when the candidates for miss umbrella festival bicycle down the main street. but the large parade happens around dusk with floats and dignitaries. Like many Thai events it then moves into a formal stage with dignitaries and local politicians thanking everyone involved. That is followed by the awarding miss umbrella festival and then some really beautiful and impressive traditional entertainment Last year the location was a bit small for the crowd creating quite a crunch to view, I”m hoping perhaps for a change to that. It”s a great event but bring your patience. Lots of street food, music etc. If you”re interested there is a dance party that goes late. My times are approximate and as you may have heard things can change quickly. See you there
