Ya like Silly String? Maybe it’s more a memory than anything else; we were surprised to find they still manufacture it.

Side note: Silly String was patented by Leonard A. Fish and Robert P. Cox in 1972 as a “foamable resinous composition.” It was originally named “Squibbly” while they were developing an aerosol spray cast for limbs.

Well, silly string, inflatables, cuisines from close to the equator (Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean) will all be available at the St. Philip Fall Fest this Saturday. Students, faculty and community members will be putting on a variety show with comedy and dance routines, and the Bingo Parlor will be up and running with high-end electronics, as well as cash prizes. The press release stipulates that the raffle is going to have cash prizes ranging from $500-$3,000. Wow.

Admission is free and scrip tickets are $1 and more to purchase food, play games, and participate in activities.

Proceeds from this annual event support St. Philip the Apostle School, which serves economically and ethnically diverse students, from kindergarten through the eighth grade.
