Break out your flannels, pumpkin spice lattes, and allergy medication, because fall is finally here. It seems like summer has lasted for an entire year, thanks to the early start to summer break we received in March, but now is the time to celebrate the temperature dropping, the leaves changing colors, the air getting crisper, and the comfort foods we have all been craving.
Student Activities is the “host with the most” when it comes to getting into the spirit of autumn, as we have been bringing Liberty students Fall Fest at Hydaway for many years. This year’s Fall Fest will be held October 2nd. Decked out with autumnal decorating necessities, the Hydaway Outdoor Center will be transformed from its usual oasis for enjoying the outdoors to being a hub for pumpkin painting, pie eating, and apple-centered attractions like candy apples and apple cider. There will be no better place to unwind and welcome in the new season than at Fall Fest.
If pie or cider is not your thing, then perhaps you would enjoy a live music set by Dylan Rolfsen, who released a new album at the end of April. Or maybe you’re not one for live music, fall festivities, or an apple pie, but would love to feel the autumn wind through your hair. Well our good friends at YES (Your Event Source) are going to be present at Fall Fest with a mechanical bull and a virtual reality coaster, with a host of other attractions as well. There truly is something for everyone at Fall Fest.
This is a free event for Liberty students with no pre-registration required. Festivities will begin around 3 PM and end at 7 PM. A bus will be running from the Green Hall bus loop to accommodate students, as parking is limited at the event. Social distancing will be enforced, but thankfully the space up at Hydaway is expansive which makes abiding by COVID-19 guidelines that much easier. Come with an appetite and an autumn attitude, but Ugg boots are definitely optional (if not discouraged because this isn’t 2016).
We can’t wait to see you at Hydaway October 2nd for Fall Fest!
