WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Burnett Creek Elementary is hosting its third annual Bobcat Bolt Friday, and the entire community is invited!

The fair will have lots of family-friendly ways to have fun both inside and outside. There will be bounce houses and other inflatables, an obstacle course, face painting, photo booths, silent auctions and more.

The school is unable to hold its usual 5K race due to construction. This year there will be a one and two mile run/walk that will take place rain or shine.

There will also be lots of local vendors like Dog n' Suds, Arni's and Kona Ice.

Noel Charshe, Chair of the Bobcat Bolt, said the event helps to give more opportunities to the school  and its students.

"To be able to put this on every year and raise funds for our school so that we can have school-wide initiatives, educational initiatives, STEM programs [and] to be able to give back to the school," Charshe said. 

Principal of Burnett Creek Elementary Matt Ridenour said the school hopes to have the Bobcat Bolt event for many years to come.

"It's just a nice way to celebrate a great school year," Ridenour said. "And also have our staff and our families come together as one."

Admission is free, and fair tickets can be purchased at the event for $0.50 each. The tickets can be used for games, auctions, foods, bounce houses and more. Food can also be payed for with cash. 

The fair will be open from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday.
