The First Annual Spring Fair Proves to be a Blooming Success


Despite the consecutive weeks of rain showers, students were able to spring into the new season at the first annual Spring Fair organized by the SGA on April 28.

Students who attended were able to buy tickets which were redeemable for several games that were sponsored by different clubs. Some of the games included pie in the face, minute to win it, giant connect four, and life-sized jenga. Participators were given a chance to win prizes from the games and raffles.

Junior Tyra Hill, who performed with POMS enjoyed participating in both her performance as well as the games.

“I think it was cool how different clubs were able to come together to create a fun time for the student body. Personally, my favorite part was the henna and the performances.” said Hill. “It’s cool how the community got to come and enjoy the fair too.”

Attendees were also able to enjoy the variety of food from a waffle truck, pizza truck, and The Corner Bakery Cafe.

Special guests, like 92Q radio station who played popular music and two Baltimore Ravens cheerleaders who took pictures with students, were also present.

Students were able to showcase their talents as dancers, singers, rappers, dramatic speakers.

The fair was first imagined by SGA President, Misbah Farooqi, whose main goal this year was to “create more unity among the students throughout the school.”

After two months of planning, the fair finally sprang into action. Even though their plans had to be changed last minute when the student leaders were caught off guard with the heavy rain, administrator Mrs. Cherry says that the SGA “executed the fair really well. I’m really proud of all the hard work they put into this and how professionally everything was handled.”

SGA Sponsor, Mrs. Burch, believes that the fair was “really successful.” They were able to raise around $400 for SGA.

Because of the success of the first spring fair, Farooqi is “hopeful that it will be able to happen again next year and will become an annual event for Wilde Lake.”
