What to Expect at Spring Fling

3 Apr

You’ve seen the advertisements and you’ve heard the chatter, but what is “Spring Fling” anyways and what do you do there? To sum it up, Spring Fling is a student-run carnival on the UA Mall complete with “carnival rides, games, food booths, and entertainment.” It is open to the University of Arizona and to the Tucson community, however U of A students do get free admission with their CatCard.


There will be 4 live performances each day of Spring Fling.  This live entertainment ranges from DJ concerts to a Curious George appearance. However, the big attraction will be when the band Smallpools performs Saturday night. Most people know the band for their song, “Dreaming.”


In terms of attractions, there will be over 35 rides and games for people of all ages. Wristbands range from $20-30 depending on the day you go and will allow you to ride an unlimited amount of rides.  Be sure to check out their promotions going on though for discounts on wristbands and admission.


There will also be a section of Spring Fling dedicated to children and family activities called the Kids Korner.  Nonprofits, local businesses, and UA clubs host the Kids Korner which will include “hula hoop contests, interactive displays, obstacle courses and much more.”


So when the weekend of April 10th rolls around, be sure to grab your friends and head over Spring Fling.  Expect lots of food, games, rides, and fun!
