A lot of fun was had by all with our ‘FIESTA’ Theme at the 48th Annual FunFest at Sandy Lake Amusement Park 

  peppers      



FunFest 2018 entertained over 65,000 students in band, choir, and orchestra. Directors were a big hit wearing a Sombrero and shouting ‘Ole’. 

Thanks to all of you for being good sports!

The families at Sandy Lake Park take pride in giving students the opportunity to participate in a festival designed as a learning experience along with the fun of an amusement park and outdoor activities.


It is a proven fact that musical skills enhance academic skills and stimulate creativity in the learning process of students. The Sandy Lake Park families are proud of the fact that for years you have allowed your students to take part in the educational and recreational activities at the largest spring music festival in the country.
