Bloomsburg students celebrate Springfest

BLOOMSBURG – Bloomsburg University students – area residents – will celebrate the approaching end of the school year with the fourth annual Springfest.

The two-day event begins from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday with Musicfest, a showcase of student musicians and local bands, at the Scranton Commons Amphitheatre.

On Saturday, students will head to Nelson Field House from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the Student Recreation Center from 6 to 9 p.m. to participate in games, sports and other activities.

The theme is “Vegas: What Happens at Fest, Stays at Fest.” Activities include dodge ball, rock climbing, inflatable obstacle courses, blackjack tables and the 5K Zombie Race for International Justice Mission. Student organizations will host activity tables to go along with the Las Vegas theme.

Due to inclement weather conditions on March 30, the Egg Hunt for Endometriosis has been rescheduled to coincide with Springfest on Saturday on the Nelson Field House Lawn. The hunt for children ages 7 to 12 will begin at 2 p.m., infants to 3 years old at 2:20 p.m., 4- to 6-year-olds at 2:40 p.m. and college students at 3 p.m. The cost is $2 per participant. Participants may bring their own baskets or receive one that they can keep with a $1 donation to the Endometriosis Association.

Springfest is sponsored by the Center for Leadership and Engagement, Community Government Association, Residence Life Office, Student Affairs Office and the Student Recreation Center, and is open to the public.
