Grab your kids, your friends and your neighbors FallFest 2008 culminates in an all-day event this Saturday, Sept. 27.
This year, visitors will enjoy the fun and excitement of Spartan Village in UNCG's stunning new outdoor gathering space, Kaplan Commons.
FallFest gives you a chance to move and groove, eat fun food, meet up with friends and play with your kids all in one day.
Located on the west lawn of the Elliott University Center, Spartan Village will feature fun favorites such as games, tasty treats, a beer tent and the music of Big Bang Boom and Sleeping Booty. Other highlights are the return of the always-popular Children's Festival in the Residential Quad and a match-up between the men's soccer team and the Brown University Bears in Spartan Stadium.
FallFest is the largest annual event at UNCG and arguably one of the largest events in the Greensboro area, says Allyson Larmore, assistant director for alumni relations and coordinator of the event. There's something for everyone; whether you enjoy cheering your Spartan athletic teams to victory, watching your kids have a ball at the Children's Festival, or kicking back to your favorite band on the main stage while enjoying a locally-brewed beer and a hot dog.
Although events continue all week long, Saturday is the date to remember. It's a day jam-packed with activities for children, teens and adults. Events are free unless otherwise specified. The festivities include:
