All About Fiesta Friday
April 5, 2024 - 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Fiesta Friday at Van Raub Elementary is an annual tradition.  Each year gets bigger and better!  This event is open to Van Raub Students and their families, as well as community members.  Children must be accompanied by adults; wristbands are required for all rides and games.  

All About Fiesta

Come out and celebrate Fiesta with us.  Read below to be in the know. 

Wristbands, Raffle Tickets & More

All rides and games require a wristband.  Age 2 and under are free.  Purchase wristbands during our pre-sale event for a discount.  Pre-sale ends March 29.  All pre-sale purchases will be delivered to your designated student prior to event day.  A wristband gets you access to all rides and games.  Wristbands are non transferrable.  Rides and games are geared for elementary age students, therefore it is not recommended you purchase wristbands for adults. 

Purchase Raffle Tickets for a chance to win a $500 Southwest Airlines Gift Card.  There will be a max of 400 Raffle tickets sold.
