It was the first time the Annual PTO Carnival at the G. Harold Antrim Elementary School featured pie-throwing.
The fun began at 11 a.m. Saturday. Seven victims, 300 pies and 60 cans of whipped cream later, it was obvious this latest addition was a big hit - in more ways than one!
Antrim Principal Thomas J. O'Hara and Sharon Lasher, who teaches seventh and eighth grade Science, were among those who got walloped with pies for a full 30 minutes (wow, that must have felt like a lot longer!).
Kids also had a great time on the giant slide and in the bouncy house, as well as playing 14 different carnival games.
Bubbles the Clown did balloons and the Garnet Gull Mascot also swooped in for a visit.
Peg Born said she and Missy Mosco, co-chairs, "want to send out a big thank you to A-1 Tents for donating the popcorn and cotton candy machine, Rt. 88 Pet World for donating the gold fish and to all the parents and teachers who volunteered to helped make this event a success for the kids.
"This year, we got even more participation and help from the teachers and we really appreciate it," Born said.
Born said the turnout was huge, possibly helped by Saturday's rain.
