Spring Weekend is one of the busiest times of the year for the University of New Haven. A large reason for this is all of the

Far East Movement performing at the University of New Haven Spring Weekend Concert provided by SCOPE.

events that are put on around campus every year at this time. Following the spring concert on Friday, April 29 was the spring carnival on Saturday, April 30. All of the cars on North Campus were cleared to make room for a variety of awesome carnival rides and games.

From 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., North Campus was absolutely packed with people taking advantage of everything there was to offer. There was a truck offering brick-oven pizza and another with fried dough. In addition to the rides, there were stuffed animals you could make, you could get a massage, get your nails done, receive a caricature of yourself, get served at a tiki bar, jump onto a Velcro wall, sumo wrestle, and much, much more!

On top of everything else, there were a variety of entertainers at the carnival to keep people entertained throughout the day. They performed a variety of magic tricks and prop routines that kept the audience laughing for hours. One even stayed after his performance to make balloon animals for people. He even had to stay after everything else in the carnival closed to finish making balloons for everyone!

Lastly, everyone was given a ticket coming in to the carnival, and at the end, prizes were drawn. They included Visa gift cards and gift cards to Five Guys, Target, ITunes, The Olive Garden, and the UNH Bookstore, as well as two Nooks, a Blu-ray player, an Xbox 360 with Kinect, a GPS, Wii, and two 32″ LCD TVs!

The carnival wasn’t the only event that took place on Saturday however. At 8:00 p.m. in the Charger Gym, there was the spring comedian. This year’s comedian was Ralphie May, famous from the first season of Last Comic Standing as well as several Comedy Central specials. After opening act Danny Lobell, a great comedian of his own, Ralphie May took the stage and put the audience in stiches with his routine, covering topics from race to terrorism and other current issues.

SCOPE (Student Committee of Programming Events) and their volunteers have worked tirelessly each day and night of spring weekend to set-up, operate, and clean-up each event. So a huge thank-you goes to them for making this one of the best weekends of the year!
