The Cayuga Community College Student Activities Board and student organizations will host a Peace Festival from noon to 6 p.m. on Friday, May 20 at the Fulton Campus, 806 West Broadway. The event is free and open to the public.
“The Peace Festival is really a celebration of the end of our academic year,” said Director of Student Activities Norman Lee. “It will have a carnival-like atmosphere and we’re hoping to attract families in the area as well as the campus community. We’ve got lots of activities, food, and music. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The festival will feature karaoke, tie-dying T-shirts, dunk tank, and carnival games. People of all ages can also participate in a range of “inflatable activities,” including Sumo wrestling, bouncing boxing, and bungee bowling. Most of the events are free or available for a minimal fee.
Caricature artist J.P. Crangle will be on hand to do drawings for people, and pop/rock artist Travis Rocco will provide the musical entertainment.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, ice cream, smoothies, and popular carnival foods like popcorn, cotton candy, and fried dough will be available for purchase.
“I hope everyone will come enjoy this event with their families and friends,” said event organizer Angela Wornick, student activity coordinator at the Fulton Campus. “The Fulton Campus is a great place, and we want to show it off and let people in the community know that we’re a resource for them.”
The event was organized by Wornick and students Heidie Donahue, Kiaya Cali, Kathy Curley, Michael Butterfield, Cralynne Abbott, and Carey Fleming from the Fulton Campus and Tanya Crane and Missy Weatherstone from the Auburn Campus. Members of all the student organizations are also assisting with the event.
