Halloween fun for all

Suzie Harrison

The writing is not on the wall, its on the backs of cars, for El

Morro’s PTA has made their vehicles moving billboards advertising

this year’s Boo Blast fund-raiser.


Boo Blast is Friday, Oct. 18, from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. at El Morro

Elementary School.

“It’s El Morro’s annual fund-raiser,” PTA President Kathy Dawson

PTA president. “It’s been going on here for around 20 years, and


basically it’s a Halloween carnival.”

The event will have rides, game booths, a haunted house, food,

snacks. New this year is a cake walk and bake sale.

“The kids love it, the parents and kids dress up in costume, we

have a lot of fun,” principal Joanne Culverhouse said.

Dawson said that there’s also a DJ providing music, hula hoop

games and prizes.

“The school will be decorated with the kid’s class Halloween


decorations all over the campus,” Dawson said.

Boo Blast is not just for the school, it’s a community event.

“The community loves it and really gets involved with it,” Dawson

said. “Usually around 500 people attend.”

Proceeds from Boo Blast go to fund assemblies, field trips,

science aid, after-school programs and teachers’ grants.

“It’s pulls all four schools together,” Culverhouse said. “It’s a

Laguna Beach event. All of Laguna Beach attends.”


Admission is free and tickets are 50 cents each for games and

rides. Parking is available across the street at Crystal Cove and

behind the school at Reef Point, with a free shuttle service from the

parking lots to the events. For more information about Boo Blast,
