Every year during the first weekend in May, Binghamton students and community members get a chance to relish in childish fun during Spring Fling. The event offers a variety of carnival rides and activities, and concludes with a free concert (past headlining acts include Passion Pit, Third Eye Blind and Taking Back Sunday!) Here are some reasons why Spring Fling is the most anticipated (and epic) event of the year.
In the days leading up to Spring Fling, you’ll see rides start to roll in and campus slowly transform into a full-on carnival. It's like Disneyland minus the mile-long lines and screaming kids.
If your meal plan is running low or your bank account is looking a little thin (hey, it's college), Spring Fling offers you a chance to stock up on tons of free food and treats. There's also caricature drawings, face painting, photo booths and other fun activities. No need for tokens or tickets to ride the rides -- just stand in line and wait for the fun to begin.
Spring Fling is one of your last chances to hang out and have a day of fun with your friends before final papers and hours spent studying in the library become the norm. Get up, get out and let loose.
Fried dough, cotton candy and the ever-popular fried Oreo are all just a short walk away from your dorm. Make sure to get there early because the lines are always packed! Save the kale smoothies for another day.
Enjoy your favorite music, chopped and screwed with funky mashups created by DJ duo the White Panda. Because who doesn't love two dudes in matching panda masks?
Bringing a little bit of West Coast flavor to the East with hits like “Gas Pedal,” Sage the Gemini is sure to get you up and busting a move.
Formed in 2002 by a group of Northeastern University students, Bad Rabbits has been an up-and-comer on the funk-rock scene for a while now. Sing along with your friends to hits like “We Can Roll’’ and “Can’t Fool Me.”
Check out a preview of all three musical acts.
In Binghamton, it feels like winter lasts from October until March, and Spring Fling welcomes the unofficial start of spring. The tradition of “stepping on the coat” signifies an end for the need to wear heavy coats and the start to warmer weather. It's about time!
From the Peace Quad all the way to the Student Wing lawn, there's student groups tabling and always a ton of different local musical groups and entertainment acts to enjoy as you walk about campus. Support your fellow Bearcats and get acquainted with members of the Binghamton community. Don't be shy.
College Magazine ranked Spring Fling #6 in its Top 10 University Music Festivals to Crash. Yeah, it's that fun.
There's always something new and interesting going on at Binghamton University, and this blog is our way of sharing in that excitement with you. Stay up to date on the latest happenings, learn something new, have a laugh (or two), and join us as we celebrate this energetic and outstanding community! This is your story, Binghamton.
