With expectations running high, this year’s Spring Fling, April 8, 2006, is underway. Are you ready?
“Every year we have a different theme. This year it will be Hawaiian,” Caitlin Scott, junior marketing major, said. Scott is a member of the CAP Board and director of Spring Fling.
“It’s going to be a more laid back atmosphere. If you have a Hawaiian shirt, wear it!” Scott said.
There will be luau-type foods there, such as hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and brownies. On a first-come-first-serve basis, water ice and soft pretzels will be offered at no charge.
Spring Fling events will begin at 1 p.m. and end at 5:30 p.m. All activities will be held outside in the mansion’s backyard. At 1 p.m., a cover band known as Triple Threat will perform, followed by a student band named Avante Garde from 2:45-3:45. Another cover band known as Chaser will perform from 4-5:30, followed by dinner until 6 p.m.
After you get a taste of the Hawaiian lifestyle, head on over to the Dixon Center at 7:30. Beginning at 8 p.m., a Cabrini band called The Company will perform until Pepper’s Ghost opens at 8:45. “This band is huge, it’s going to be awesome,” Scott said.
After Pepper’s Ghost, Phantom Planet will rock the Dixon Center until about 11:15 p.m. Tickets are $10 for Cabrini students and $12 for guests.
If you’re hungry after this fun-filled evening, you can go to the cafeteria from 12-2 a.m. for the Midnight Breakfast, which is $3 for all who attend. Karaoke will be taking place inside the cafeteria to entertain anyone who comes.
Scott and other students put an immense amount of work into making this fling the best yet. “It was an excruciating amount of work but I have a great team behind me,” Scott said.
Although the weather forecast is calling for rain on April 8, go out and enjoy all the hard work CAP Board has put into Spring Fling 2006. The rain location will be Grace Hall. “We want people to come out and just have fun.and bring your friends!” Scott said.
