Fall Fest!

28 Oct

Fall Fest just happened this evening, Thursday, October 28, 2010, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event was open to Southeastern University students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community of Lakeland. When you first arrive at the new location on campus, the new parking lot and intramural field, there is a white tent set up for admission of $3 and then they take your picture.

One of the fun things to do for Fall Fest is dress up in a costume. Or for some college students who do not have extra money, they can come as a college student. There were some very creative costumes there tonight. From the Grinch that Stole Christmas with the Who villagers to the Chilean miners that were rescued to a Barbie in the plastic box.

There were awards for best costumes for the categories single, couple and group. The single one went to a guy dressed up as Jack Sparrow from the movie the Pirates of the Caribbean. The couple went to a couple dressed as a Droid and a iTouch. The group one went to the Grinch that Stole Christmas. There were some great costume ideas that showed up at Fall Fest tonight.

This event had multiple stations with many different games to play like a carnival. There was a dunk tank, snow cones, cotton candy, bake goods, fire pits with hay barrels to make s’mores, bounce houses and much more. It was a great night of competition from pumpkin carving to egg toss just to name a few.

My favorite part of the night was the hay ride. I went on it twice. They would take us all over the school grounds. It could seat about 20 people. Overall, it was a great night and very well planned. They even had a station that supplied just bug spray if the mosquitoes were bothering you. Looking forward to it next year.

    That looks like you all had so much fun! I wanted to go, but having a little one who goes to bed at 6 pm doesn’t allow us to do much as a family. I would have loved to see the dunk tank, and just hang out with some friends and enjoy the Florida fall air. I enjoyed reading this post, and the hay ride sounded like a blast. Hopefully we will be able to make it out next year with our little one.
