    We know this will be a wonderful event that so many in our community are excited to attend.

Delicious food trucks will keep us nourished, plus all the tricks and treats of the carnival! We can't wait to see you!

    What is the Morningside 'Monster Base'?

    Since 1980, the Morningside PTA has hosted a Halloween Carnival each fall, open to our wonderful community.

    Our students and children from all parts of our community look forward to this event all year.  They love to spend the day at Morningside playing with their friends, showing off their costumes and getting in the spirit of the season! Families enjoy games, rides, food, a delicious bake sale, the spectacular haunted house-made by our very own 5th graders and much, much more. Important information relating to general admission wristbands, the bake sale, pumpkin decorating auction, 5th grade Haunted Swamp, and volunteer needs and more are located below.

    Fifth Grade Haunted House

    Don't miss the super spooky, “Fifth Grade Haunted House ”. This well-loved tradition is a fan favorite.

    We need your help bringing the Haunted House to life. To lend a hand or donate an item for the event, please sign up for a Haunted House volunteer slot

    Is your 5th grader ready?! Does your student want to be IN the Haunted House? Wait no longer! Here is the 5th grade student sign-up. We need actors, ticket takers and tour guides all day at the Monster Bash, working in shifts of just 75 minutes. Please contact Jonathan Low for more information.

    Annual Bake Sale

    Sign up to donate baked goods (homemade or purchased) for the bake sale. We welcome cakes, cookies, bars, candy or anything else sweet!
