The Campus Activities Board, also known as CAB, holds an annual festival wherein the Christopher Newport community can gather and have a great time together with free gifts, food and activities. There’s one for every season we’re in school: fall, winter and spring. Spring Fest was today and I had a great time with all of my friends. This event was held by a different committee than the one I’m a part of, so I didn’t have a hand in planning in it. Instead, I could just walk around and enjoy all the sights.
My friends and I immediately got in line for a free shirt within two minutes of walking in. From there, we grabbed a “bingo” card which you could use to win a to-go cup if all of the spaces were filled with a stamp you could receive from the different stations at the event. We went around playing with moon boots, obstacle courses and trivia, earning different stamps along the way. Though, we definitely had the most fun when we got on the various inflatable carnival games. After a lot of exercise, we canceled it all out with some free fries and popcorn.
It was the perfect way to start off the weekend and coast into exam week. After a long semester, it felt great to unwind and spend some quality time with my friends. CAB’s festival events are by far one of my favorite part of being a Captain and they just keep getting better and better!
