Super-size the school fair

In Montana, the Education Foundation of Billings Public Schools sponsors an annual Saturday Live carnival that has become a very popular communitywide event, the Billings Gazette reports. Where one school hosting a fair on campus might draw a few hundred visitors, Saturday Live had about 9,000 attendees this year--and raised more than $63,000 for school groups.

There's strength in numbers.

What other schools and community groups can you partner with to put on bigger, more entertaining--and thus more profitable--events?
