Deadlines are fast approaching for advertising and sponsorships, wristband presales, and vendor exhibit opportunities.

“We are thrilled to open up our campus once again to families in and around the Bucks County area for this special family event,” said Deborah Kost, Head of School at Grey Nun Academy. “Our close-knit parent community works so hard to manage all aspects of Fall Fun Day, from planning through execution, and always delivers one of Bucks County’s most fun-filled, fall family events of the season. By adding even more new attractions like hot air balloon rides, a stunt jump, circus performers, and live musical entertainment, this year will be no exception!”

With the advance purchase of a $25 wristband, children can enjoy unlimited fun on the inflatables all day long. By purchasing one of several ticket package options, families can enjoy various activities, including the hot air balloon, pumpkin launch, carnival games, face painting, tattoo artist, and dance party glow items.
