The Morinville Public Elementary School Parent Fundraising Association held their 3rd Annual MPES Carnival June 14, a four-hour event that drew approximately 1,500 parents and children to take part in a large variety of free activities. Organizers say the turnout to this year’s event is triple that of the first year and a 50 per cent increase over the 2013 version of the event.

All activities were provided free of charge except food purchases and a fundraising raffle, the latter going to fund a new community playground at the school. Total amount raised was not available by press deadline.

Below are some photos from the MPES Carnival.
