FALMOUTH — The Falmouth Elementary PTO will host a farewell festival Friday and Saturday to help the community say goodbye to the Plummer-Motz and Lunt elementary schools.

The schools will close at the end of the school year in preparation for the opening next fall of a new elementary school that has been built near the town’s middle and high schools.

The June 14 municipal ballot includes a proposal to reuse the schools as a public library and community center.

The festival will start Friday with a free community picnic from 5 to 8 p.m. on the schools’ playground. Food has been donated by Pineland Farms and European Bakery. Participants are asked to bring a pie to share.

On Saturday, a Spirit of Falmouth Parade will start at Village Park at 9 a.m., follow Hat Trick Drive and Lunt Road to the schools, and conclude around 10 a.m.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the festival will kick into high gear with a carnival and cookout, sponsored in part by Shaw’s Supermarket.

Attractions will include musical performances, two “bouncy houses,” an obstacle course, a rock-climbing wall and a “Minute to Win It” tent. Admission is $3 per person, including lunch.
