Family Festival has arrived once again to provide a day of entertainment and enjoyment for the entire family. Mission San Jose High School Associated Student Body (MSJHS ASB) will be hosting their Third Annual Family Festival, bringing a day in which kids and adults alike can enjoy a day of rides, music, and of course, a variety of food.
The event began as a small fundraiser for MSJHS ASB, which has now turned into a great festival for the entire city. The first Family Festivals were geared toward a younger audience, but with the addition of entertainment and food trucks, MSJHS is hoping to encourage high school students to come as well. Many popular food trucks will be present including Mogo's, Sweet Coco, and Jamba Juice. The Family Festival will also feature pony rides, ten different bounce houses and slides, Euro Bungee jumping, rock climbing, face painting, Disney characters, games and prizes.
MSJHS hopes to beat their fundraising goals from previous years. The school would like to establish the Family Festival as a well-known signature festival for the area. Although this event is still fairly new, each year ASB is planning to improve the Family Festival by adding bigger, better, and even more entertainment. As Ashlyn Iwatani, one of the organizers of this event said, "We want to make [the festival] as good as it can be!"
