6 Things You Don’t Want to Miss at Spring Fling 2023

Posted by Jillian McCarthy on April 25, 2023

Springhamton has officially arrived, which means it’s time for the best event of the year: Spring Fling!

Our annual festival is the perfect way to end a great semester. Last year I spent the entire day with friends, and it was by far my favorite event on campus. A little tip: it’s best to get an early start to hit as many tables and rides as possible. You can grab some food at the fest, chill with friends, then make your way to the concert at night! Trust me; you won’t want to miss out on all the fun.

Soak up the sunshine, relax before finals and celebrate! Here are some things to look forward to this year at Spring Fling:

During the day, Spring Fling is essentially a big carnival right here on campus! There will be some fun rides in the Peace Quad. Last year we got to ride a carousel, race on some big slides and fly around on the swing ride!

Games and Prizes

Carnival games will line the spine! This was definitely one of my favorite parts of the festival. If you and your friends love a little competition, this is the place to be.

Food Trucks

There will be plenty of great carnival food at Spring Fling, but there will also be a few food trucks with delicious options like BBQ, mac and cheese, and sweets. Take a break from the rides and games, get some lunch and hang out in the sunshine!
