Warm weather, friends, food and fun activities are all planned for the annual Cabrini College Spring Fling on Saturday, May 5. Daytime activities will take place from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m., but more fun is planned into the night.
There will be numerous chances to get physical. Everyone will have a chance to become a sumo wrestler, wearing an inflatable fat suit and battling it out with equally fat opponents. There will also be a Bungee Bull, which is a bull ride, similar to those seen in cowboy bars, with bungee cords attached so people can try to pull you off. A giant inflatable Slip and Slide will be available for those who need to cool off after all that wrestling and riding. All activities will be free.
All that strenuous activity is bound to make one hungry. A barbecue lunch will be available free for all students at 12 p.m. Just bring your meal card to get some grub. Please leave room for dessert, because Rita’s will provide the sweet cool treat of water ice. The barbecue and most of the activities will take place in front of Founders Hall.
If free food and activities are not enough for you, free gifts will be given away also. Free T-shirts will be given out after 12 p.m. 93.3 WMMR will be on campus with contests and giveaways including a chance to win a car.
The Zoo, a cover band will be performing live between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. and a DJ will spin tunes at night for those who like to dance.
Public safety will have a heavy presence this year due to some of the bad behavior of last year’s Spring Fling. “It’s not going to be the way it was last year,” Charles Schaffner, the director of public safety, said. Schaffner added that he hopes that the Cabrini community will enjoy themselves without getting out of hand.
So come out on a beautiful day for freebies, fun and friends during Cabrini College’s annual Spring Fling.
