USF Week to conclude with RiverFest activities
RiverFest will conclude USF Week with an all-day schedule of festivities at Riverfront Park hosted by the Recreation and Wellness Center.
Activities will be free to students and occur on April 15 from noon to 6 p.m. Transportation is planned to be provided between the Riverfront Park and the Marshall Student Center during the event’s duration. The last bus will leave the park at 6 p.m. and carpooling is recommended due to the event’s limited parking space, according to the Recreation and Wellness website.
Attendees will be able to engage in a variety of activities, including boating, beach volleyball, disc golf, a slip and slide, ziplining, walking around to different food trucks and participating in a treasure hunt.
There will also be time slots for students to participate in zumba classes on Riverfest Pavilion A from 1 to 2 p.m., according to the Recreation and Wellness website.
The first 100 attendees to sign in will also be entered into a giveaway of Recreation and Wellness Center merchandise — such as bags, cups and sunglasses — according to the Recreation and Wellness website.
A total of eight people have registered to attend as of April 9, according to the Recreation and Wellness BullsConnect page.
