Since the mid-1990s, Oviedo High School has been hosted a carnival–for most years, anyway. The carnival did not happen on last year, but it will be happening this year.

“We will be having the spring carnival on the front field on April 12-15,” said athletic director Jennifer Darty. “It is sponsored by the Oviedo High School Athletic Booster Club.”

Some students remember the previous carnivals.

“I went to the Oviedo fair before with a couple of friends and I had a lot of fun and made great memories,” said senior Peyton Scott.

Younger students, however, are new to the idea.

“I haven’t ever been, but I am going to go this year with my friends and I’m really looking forward to it,” said freshman Adam Miceli.

The Booster Club, which had elections last year for its executive board, hosts the carnival, then donates the proceeds to OHS athletics. The amount of money varies each year based upon attendance.

According to Darty, the athletics department then oversees how the funds get used.
