Have you ever thought about dunking a friend or a teacher in a water tank? What about shooting some hoops during seventh period (when you should be in Biology class)? Or just walking around school campus eating and talking with all your friends? Well, you can at this year’s Fall Festivus. In previous years, Fall Festivus has always been held in the front of Lincoln High School, but due to construction, it has been moved over to the west side of the school and track field. The rules themselves haven’t changed, but sponsors do hope to keep kids around longer then passed years. Sponsor Richard Jackson said, “He hopes that kids will become more involved in what Fall Festivus has to offer.” He also said, “They plan on having maps of the area were Festivus will be held at to help the kids find were all the stands are located so you wont have to worry about missing out on something you really wanted to see or do.”
You may wonder how long Festivus has been around or whose in charge of choosing all the fun-filled activities? Before it was called “Festivus”, Lincoln High celebrated the beginning of the year with “Back To School Bash.” Jackson said, “Fall Festivus, itself, has been around for over 10 years but I’ve only been sponsoring it for 6 years, I enjoy sponsoring Fall Festivus not only to see the end result but to see the kids enjoy something different from their regular school day.”

Festivus also serves as an opportunity for students to see the various clubs and activities at Lincoln High. Clubs sponsor an array of tables to promote their causes and to raise money, too. Festivus is very popular when it comes to cuisines. Students have a wide-range of choices when it comes to dining. The American Indian Caucus is selling fry bread, Middle Eastern Club will be selling falafel meals, Las Razas Unidas will be serving nachos, and Asian Caucus have traditionally sold egg rolls.

Tickets will be sold for the activities and food for the annual celebration that truly is for all Lincoln High students.
