Student Government Association in Palm Beach Gardens is hosting a Fall Festival on Nov. 19 on the Athletic Field. The event is going to take place from 10am to 3pm and is open to everyone. The event is free. This is the fifth annual event that Student Activities host in cooperation with SGA.
According to Mike Schultz, SGA Event Coordinator, who is also in charge of the Fall Festival, this event is coordinated in order to promote unity among students, families, friends and community as a whole. At the event, there are going to be 8 booths set up. Each booth varies in what it offers: from art and crafts and basket ball to apple cider pong and zombie shooting.
“I am very excited for the event. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen there, because I have never been to one,” said Gee Gee Narcisse, SGA Senator at the Gardens campus.
This big all-campus event includes the participation of almost every club on campus. And every one of them contributes to the event’s diversity and cultural creativity. Spanish Club is having a booth which will offer authentic Latin food and games. Dream It Do It club is launching the chili cook-off during the event. There are also going to be many contests. One of the most interesting ones, according to Schultz is a pie eating contest. Every participant will be offered to eat a big piece of a pumpkin pie in a short period of time. The fastest eater will win a special prize from SGA.
Also, there are going to be carnival games that will include, but will not be limited to corn hole and water duck wars. Student Activities is expecting around 150 people to show up for the event.
“Actually it is a terrific event. I encourage it happens on annual bases. It is a great way to spend time with your family,” says Schultz.
