Live music. Funnel cakes. Face painting. Children's laughter. Parade. Pep rally. Beer. Old friends. Heart-pounding soccer. Screaming fans. What more could you ask for? FallFest 2009 has it all.
Back by popular demand: The 80s tribute band The Breakfast Club will perform at Spartan Village during Fallfest again this year.
The party begins Sept. 26 at 11 a.m. with the children's festival and music from Chuck Folds' Big Bang Boom at Kaplan Commons in front of Elliott University Center. Kids can romp, munch on festive food and bounce on inflatables (always a favorite). Adults will enjoy performances by the Phase Band and The Breakfast Club.
The annual parade kicks off at 3 p.m. And you won't want to miss the pep rally at 5 p.m., followed by coronation of FallFest's king and queen. Don't forget to wear your blue and gold as you march into the soccer stadium to cheer the Spartans to victory over Charlotte.
In addition to all the regular fun activities you've come to expect, make sure you set aside time for the new Trolley Tour and Open House. Curious about what you might see? Take a look at the interactive map here.
And this is just a small sampling of events going on throughout the weekend. You can also drop in on school reunions, take a historic tour, watch a Broadway-caliber performance, cheer at the annual past vs. present rugby match, attend a benefit concert and more.
