Opportunity to Serve: Annual Fall Carnival hosted by Students of NSA

“The Fall Carnival is a fun-filled opportunity for NSA students to serve families and kids,” Greta Reydell, the organizer of the event, said about the Fall Carnival that took place last week.

Every year, students from New Saint Andrews college in Moscow, Idaho host and put together an annual carnival for local families and kids to dress up, play games, and get candy. 

This was the 17th year for this event that is entirely run by NSA students.

There were a variety of game booths as well as a costume contest. About 40 NSA students helped with running the event and set up.  

Greta, a senior at the college, added: “It connects NSA students within the broader Moscow community.”

There were over 150 people in attendance for the three hour event held at the Latah County Fairgrounds.

A number of the families who attended are alumni who used to help with this event when they were at the school. Now they are bringing their own kids. 

Greta said that one of her favorite parts of the event was the costume contest. “Getting to see families dress up together in so many creative ways is a hoot.”

Some of the costumes came from various pop-culture characters: The Incredibles, The Princess Bride, and Avengers. One student was dressed up as Matt Walsh. Another was dressed up like Edna Mode.  

Greta concluded by saying, “This was my first year organizing the event and I’m so excited to start planning for next year!”
