Chandler High’s DECA program brought an amazing Winter Wonderland carnival for all ages on December 1st. 

Many people attended with their families and friends to enjoy a little treat or just to catch up with other students with food trucks, music, carnival games, and more. The Winter Wonderland also includes fun booths like Cup Roulette, Cornhole, and even a pie-throwing booth. Sophomore Saniya Lemons, working at the Cup Roulette booth, explained why her game booth was so successful: “Just pay a ticket and choose whatever cup, and you might get candy!” This festive event also featured live entertainment, including performances by the Chandler High Treblemakers, Modazz, and Blue Diamond Majorettes. Mrs. Haffey, English teacher at Chandler High said, “There are a lot of options and ways for the school to showcase its talent and it gives it a sense of community.”  

While this year’s Winter Wonderland was amazing, there are definitely improvements we hope to see in future years. Multiple people mentioned the cold weather, suggesting the event could be held earlier in the day. Although the carnival was relatively busy, some people felt the carnival could have been better advertised. Sophomore Makayla Nickles said, “I feel like the whole parking lot should be filled.” Freshman Angelina Peralta wished for more free activities at the carnival: “They should make some booths free.” While this event was designed as a fundraiser for DECA and the other clubs involved, a few free activities could bring in more price-conscious carnival goers. 

Overall, DECA’s Winter Wonderland was a fun and entertaining event and we are excited to see what DECA does in the future and how the Winter Wonderland changes next year.
