No one could think of a better day for the Fall Fun Fest to be hosted. With so many helping hands to set all of the brand new courses and activities up, the air outside the West High courtyard couldn’t be any more positive and pleasant. Food trucks were setting up while singers stood on the podium and gathered all their courage to begin and sing. The feeling of festivity was lively; the Fall Fest was beginning, and all for a good cause.

The Fall Fest was hosted on October 22nd on the wide school courtyard of West High by the Student Senate, who host some of the biggest school events that many students attend to, by giving the student body a say on what events should run at West. “[Student Senate] includes organizing community building events like Homecoming and Fall Fest, but also helping to communicate the concerns and vision of the student population in order to enhance the climate of West High,” said Travis Henderson, Student Senate adviser.

This year, they became more than successful, for the amount of money made was higher than expected. “We broke even,” Henderson said. “We were actually expecting to lose money on Fall Fest, so we were very excited that we were able to cover costs,” he says. “Whenever you start a new event, you don’t expect to have a large crowd. The fact that so many people came out was a big surprise, and we were very pleased with the results.”

Part of their proceeds also went towards SSIKED’s disaster relief efforts as well. “These supported the Red Cross to help alleviate the suffering caused by all of the natural disasters that occurred around the country in late summer and through the fall.”

For such a big success, Henderson hopes to have Fall Fest around as a tradition for a quite a while. “Fall Fest had been done for a long time, but it used to be much smaller. This is the first year that we did a big Fall Fest and invited the whole community, We’re hopeful it will become a long-term tradition at West.”

And many students hope so too. There was many positive feedback on attractions, food, and music, making Fall Fest a home run in school held events. “Everything about Fall Fest is really cool,” Annie Perez ‘21 said.
“It’s so much fun to be here. Everything is nice, and I can’t wait for next years. I’m sure it’s going to be even better.”
