"So incredible, it's so much fun! I cannot help it, I love coming down here. I love the circus. I love Fall Festival. And I love everybody here," said one student.

"You know I love doing this. This is so much fun," said volunteer Scott Dermer.

"And I cannot wait to ride the ferris wheel, eat all the snacks," said one North Middle School student.

This day every year, rain or shine, is just for the kids and the smiles that erupt after a very special day.
