The Associated Students of Citrus College (ASCC) will be hosting the 22nd Annual SpringFest on April 30 through May 3.
During SpringFest, campus clubs will have booths set up promoting both themselves and this year’s theme: “Hot in the City.”
“SpringFest is one of the biggest events of the year,” ASCC Commissioner of Activities, Brandi Garcia said.
An event that spans over four days—this particular SpringFest features daily interpretations of the theme, “Hot in the City.”
ASCC and the involved clubs will be operating as well as taking part in various activities pertaining to each day’s theme.
“Hot Havana Casino Night,” will be held April 30 and will feature blackjack tables and ‘80s-themed karaoke.
“Miami Vice” will be the event theme on May 1 and will feature an ‘80s-themed costume contest and a laser tag event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., during in which the final hour of the event will be hosted for the club representatives.
The following day, “Spring Bash in South Beach,” will feature food trucks from The Summin’ Gourmet, Komodo, No Jodas Kitchen Cuban food and Longboards Ice Cream, as well as club activities, such as a lip syncing contest, booth decorating contest—in the theme of “Iconic Florida”—a Frisbee toss and a whiffle golf driving contest.
On the event’s closing day, “Hispanic Heritage Carnivale” will feature a comedy show, DJ, Carnivale-style “Rio” dancers and a live salsa band.
“Personally, I’ve always found SpringFest to be a very enjoyable experience,” GSA vice president Jaden Hathaway said. “There are always enticing and fun activities to do and partake in.”
The clubs represented at SpringFest will each also have their own activities for students to participate in.
“This year, GSA is going to be hosting a water balloon toss on April 30, selling pineapple kabobs, May 1, and hosting a shoot-the-can carnival type game on May 2, in which both the water balloon toss and shoot-the-can have prizes for the winners,” Hathaway said.
Various clubs will also be offering a variety of concessions throughout the course of each day, such as: snow cones and candy apples offered by the Anime Club; nachos, cotton candy and popcorn offered by the Psychology Club; and pizza offered by H.O.P.E.
“Students should expect a lot of activity and a colorful environment,” ASCC student trustee elect Crescencio Calderon said.
SpringFest takes place April 30-May 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
