Fall Festival is scheduled for Sunday, October 31, at the track behind Hulsey Wellness Center, according to Student Association (SA) Social Vice President and junior biology major Ari Rodriguez. She said 21 clubs will have booths and host activities at the event, which will be held from 4 to 6 p.m.
According to Rodriguez, Fall Festival will have activities such as cornhole, balloon darts and pumpkin bowling. There also will be a dalgona honeycomb candy competition hosted by Asian Club.
“I’m very interested to see how the honeycomb game goes for the Asian Club because I know it’s really in pop culture right now,” Rodriguez said.
Junior nursing major and Asian Club President Charles Dugaduga said the game will be a timed activity. Each participant will have five minutes to break out a shape from a dalgona candy. There also will be a leaderboard, according to Dugaduga.
Allied Health Club President Jack Wheeler, junior health science major, said his club will have an obstacle course.
“I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of people have a good time and take a break from working to enjoy the day,” Wheeler said in an interview with the Accent.
The Education Club will be doing Pick-a-Duck, according to junior English major and club president Katelynn Webster.
“Essentially, people give a ticket to pick a duck for the chance to win different prizes such as gift cards, T-shirts and stickers,” Webster said. “Even if they don’t win a prize, they get to keep the duck that they picked!”
Rodriguez said Fall Festival is an opportunity for clubs to earn money. Students who attend the event will be given 10 tickets for free at the entrance. Each club will charge one or two tickets for students to participate in its activity. Clubs will get 75 cents for every ticket they receive during the event.
“Even if [you] don’t want to stay the whole time, you can still give any of your leftover tickets to your preferred club and help them raise money,” Rodriguez said. “So, be there for your clubs.”
If students want to buy more tickets, Rodriguez said they can purchase them at the entrance where they received their first 10 tickets.
Rodriguez said that more announcements will be made about Fall Festival on SA’s Instagram account, @sa_southern.
