If you’re heading to the CMU Spring Carnival, you’ll get the chance to hang out with the Flintstones and ’80s hair bands. Well, kind of.
More than 20 student organizations built time-hop-themed booths (i.e. multi-story structures featuring interactive games and decorations) you can check out from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday at the College of Fine Arts parking lot. Admission is free.
We stopped by Friday afternoon to give you a sneak peak:
CMU junior Tara Stentz, 21, poses like Wilma in front of Delta Gamma’s “The Flintstones” booth. Stentz outfitted the electricity in her sorority’s booth.
Carnival goers line up to enter Delta Tau Delta’s Atlantis.
Carnival overall judges review Sigma Phi Epsilon’s “Star Wars” booth. Booths fall into one of four competitive categories — blitz (smaller), fraternity, independent and sorority — and are judged by three groups of judges: overall, evening and environmental. Winners will be announced during a ceremony at 4 p.m. Saturday.
