Kid’s Raffle

The Gardenview Bazaar features a raffle just for the kids! Each child gets their own raffle tickets to “spend” on any of the items on the kid’s raffle table.  We have multiple drawings throughout the day and winners will be chosen at random for each prize. The child does not need to be present to win, as the parents will be contacted with instructions on how to claim their gift.

Entertainment

 
Throughout the day you will be entertained by local performers ranging from group performers to magicians and singing fairytale characters to jugglers!  Follow our public Facebook event page for an up to date listing of entertainment line up.

Bake Sale

As with any good school fundraiser, you will experience some of the best baked goods lovingly crafted by the supportive parents of Gardenview Montessori Pre-School and Kindergarten.

We always have choices that are gluten and nut free as well as traditionally baked breads and cookies.  We have healthy choices for early visitors with our delicious Gardenbrew coffee locally roasted by Hammerhead Coffee, fresh fruit and locally donated goods to feed your hungry breakfast belly.

Activities For The Kids

 
We have a special area just for the kids!  There are carnival games to win prizes and creative crafts for the kids along with the Kids Raffle.  Each child receives one free ticket and everything in the kids area can be enjoyed for a single ticket.  Tickets are 5 for $1.
