EL CERRITO -- Students and families will find plenty to keep them entertained from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday as Fairmont Elementary School, 724 Kearney St., holds its Fall Festival and Pumpkin Patch and Global Day of Play.
The festival will have numerous games and events, pumpkins for sale, treats and other carnival fun.
At the Global Day of Play and Cardboard Challenge, visitors can make their own cardboard creation and see what Fairmont students have been making while working on projects during and after school this past week.
"Our students have made cardboard arcade games inspired by the film 'Caine's Arcade' (www.cainesarcade.com)," writes parent Jen Komaromi.
Like Fairmont, other schools around the world are taking part in the Imagination Foundation's Global Day of Play (www.imagination.is/press) and showing the creations they can make using their own ingenuity and creativity.
