Welcome to the Party: A Fiesta in El Niño

“Step right up and try your hand at the Bean Bag Toss. A fantastic prize for the kiddo with the arrow accurate arm!”

“Come test your teeth on the donut on a string and win an even sweeter prize!”

If you’ve ever wanted to be a carnival barker, here is your opportunity.

The Fiesta in Mexico on November 19 will be rip-roaring fun. This carnival style event is put on by Do For One sponsors for our sponsored students and families, so it’s a perfect time to connect with your student and their family. We’ll have games galore, face painting, costume photo shoots, crafts, and the highlight of any Fiesta, tacos!

Do I need to know Spanish?

You mean, to have fun with kids? Absolutely not. A carnival with kids wearing funny wigs and dodging for donuts translates itself. Of course, if you know Spanish, it is an added bonus!

What will I do?

With almost 20 different booths, we have more than enough for everyone to lend a hand. If you have a knack for photography, a tongue and ear for Spanish, like to serve food, event setup, or want to get involved in team leadership, there is plenty to do.

What do I need to participate?

A US passport, sunscreen, water, sunshine in your heart and a big smile!
