The Student Alumni Association will be reigning in spring today with a carnival and concert.

Campus will play host to SpringFest, an event similar to JamFest in the fall. SpringFest is being financed by SAA along with the Student’s Association. Admission will be free. Zack Morgan, SAA president, said SpringFest is an enjoyable opportunity for students.

“SpringFest is a fun, laid-back time for people to come and enjoy the changing weather, entertainment and Cajun Cones,” said Morgan, senior biology major from Keller. “There is plenty to do in a fun environment.”

The carnival, to be located on the south-side lawn of the Hunter Welcome Center, will begin this afternoon at 4 and continue until 7 p.m. Features will include a mechanical bull; a petting zoo; a faculty dunk tank; Cajun Cones served in glow-in-the-dark cups; hamburgers, hot dogs and popcorn; and student-run booths and games.

The concert, to occur next to Faubus Fountain Lake, will begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 10:30 p.m. The concert will feature 11 bands, all of which are composed of former or current ACU students.

“I’m very excited about the groups that we have for the concert this year,” Morgan said. “We have some solid performers from previous years as well as some promising new groups.”

The following groups will be performing during the concert:
Micah Bynum – 6:00 p.m.
Mighty Kong – 6:15 p.m.
No Face – 6:32 p.m.
Super Silly Schubert Squad – 6:50 p.m.
