The 2016 Homecoming Carnival

Games, food, bouncy castles, live performances, what wasn’t at DHS’ 2016 Homecoming Carnival? From popcorn to panpuri, to tic tac toe and dart balloons, Henna tattooing and spin art, all bases were covered for a good night.


As this is my first year at Dublin High, I’ve been pumped to experience all of DHS’s traditions; s,I’ve been told that Homecoming Week, and all that it has to offer, is one of the events that cannot be missed-–especially the carnival. I was definitely not disappointed!


Different clubs and groups were selling goods to support different causes. For example, Me2We sold lemon bars the proceeds of which will go towards funding the construction of a school in Sierra Leone.  Another club, Dublin High’s Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) sold handmade bracelets and cookies to promote global acceptance of all genders and sexualities.


Sophomores shared that their favorite part of the event was hanging out with friends, and thought that the most interesting booths were the UNICEF T4 booth and the Dublin Shield’s own Polaroid picture booth.


A new student, sophomore Jada Legaspi, gave her thoughts on the carnival:

“It’s pretty nice! It’s better than my old school, that’s for sure. There’s more to do, and it’s really interactive, and you get more stuff. My favorite booth was the popcorn and my favorite game was the dunk tank because I got to dunk someone on my first try.”
