With rock music setting the theme, Riverfield School's annual spring carnival -- appropriately, "Rock on Riverfield" -- offered a rollicking good time Saturday after threatening weather Friday night delayed the fun for a day.
"The event funds additional enrichment programs in science, social studies, math and other subjects," said Stacy DeSabella, one of four Riverfield parents who organized the carnival.
"This is our largest fundraiser and features 25 rides, facilitated by Rainbow Amusements," she added. "It's a good community builder."
To make up for the loss of Friday night, the carnival continues at the Mill Plain Road school from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Besides amusement rides, there were food wagons, baked goods and school merchandise on hand.
"We come here every year," parent Ken Kubel said. "The kids love it and look forward to it. Even our older children, who already moved on from Riverfield, want to come back and enjoy it."
Another parent, Sakina Badaruddin, added, "My older son goes to school here. We live nearby and it was a nice day to come out and enjoy the carnival and some school spirit."
The scheduling shuffle didn't throw a damper on fun for 11-year-old Jessica Takami. "I've been here in the past with my friends and cousins," she said. "It's always fun. My favorite ride is the Roll O Plane. I like the food, too, like the caramel apples."
