Carnival returns to Centre’s campus

Posted by Centre News in Campus, News 05 May 2016

Spring CarnivalFor more than a century, the Centre College community has looked forward to Carnival, an annual rite of spring.

From 4-7 p.m. on Friday, May 6, Centre’s Festival Lawn will be filled with inflatables and games for all ages. Student organizations across campus also will have booths with various activities designed for fun and to raise awareness.

Dinner will be served on the lawn from 5-8 p.m. with special cookout-themed selections.

The annual St. Baldrick’s event will also take place during Carnival from 5-6:30 p.m. in front of Old Centre. Each year, students raise funds for St. Baldrick’s foundation by promising to shave their heads in return for a financial pledge to the nonprofit. Since 1999, St. Baldrick’s has organized efforts all over the world to fund research for childhood cancer and facilitate treatment for young people fighting this deadly disease.
