Celebrate at the end of semester carnival

For the duration of Friday night, the UC Green will not serve as a quiet tranquil study spot. Instead, the sounds of laughter and music will be heard as Canes Night Live (CNL) hosts a free carnival in front of the Otto G. Richter Library.

“I’m really excited to watch everyone come out to celebrate being a Cane,” said senior Michelle Peña, the chair of CNL, whose executive board has been planning the event over the past year. “Canes Carnival is my favorite event of the year to close a successful academic year with [the]UM community.”

The event, aimed at providing an on-campus festival open to all students, faculty and administrators, will host a number of carnival-style attractions, such as a coconut tree climb, an Orbitron, a bungee run and a balloon water race.

Additionally, numerous student organizations will be hosting booths with individual activities. Hurricane Productions’ Concerts Committee will be sponsoring live music that will be playing popular songs from the 80s, 90s and today. They will be taking song requests the night of the carnival.

Free hotdogs, hamburgers, churros, funnel cakes and lemonade icees will be available.

“We’ve kept a lot of the attractions that have been successful in the past. We have added a lot more to the event to cater to more students and include everyone’s interests,” Peña said.

Senior Amanda Modestill, treasurer of CNL, expects for a record number of attendees at the event.

“Last year we had over 1,000 people and this year we hope top that,” she said. “This year looks to be one of the best carnivals ever.”
