OMES Fall Fun Fest is Saturday, October 29th!

Fall means back to school and what better way to celebrate than with a Fall Fun Fest?

Oak Mountain Elementary School (OMES) will be hosting a festival on Saturday, October 29th at OMES from 9am-3pm.

The public is invited to come join the fun and support OMES! The cost will be $15 for a wrist band ($5 for 3 year olds and under). They can be purchased at the OMES school office at 5640 Cahaba Valley Road. Wrist bands include unlimited visits to decorate a treat bag, pumpkin decorating, nail and hair art, face painting, make a bottle cap necklace, tile coasters, Chia Head people, your own glitter hair gel, bamboo stick kites and fall magnets. The activities included in the wrist band are different interactive inflatables, football toss, go-fish booth, mining for prizes, golf, basketball, pumpkin bowling, baseball pitching speed station, tractor pull (hay ride), petting zoo, balloon animals, candy bar walk, cake walk, and a soda walk.

Get ahead on your Christmas shopping by visiting the silent auction and the vendors’ hall! The silent auction will include teacher’s gifts of time, restaurant gift certificates, retail gift certificates and gift certificates for services as well. We'll also have the always-popular themed baskets donated by each classroom. Miscellaneous items usually include artwork, jewelry and handmade clothes. Anyone with a small business who is interested in being a vendor is welcome as well! Please contact

Food is not included in the wrist band price but can be purchased separately. Jim 'N' Nicks will offer lunch for $5.00. The choices are a BBQ sandwich, hot dog, two chicken tenders plus chips, and water or tea. The snack bar will include favorites such as cotton candy, candy apples, chips and soft drinks. Prices are from $.50 to $1.00 per item, purchased with $.50 tickets.

Tickets for all of this can be purchased ahead of time by stopping by the school’s office at 5640 Cahaba Valley Road. For additional information, please call 205-682-5230 or email
