Here’s what’s happening on Georgetown Day
This Friday, despite the chance of rain, Georgetown’s students will partake in the age-old tradition of going outside and sitting around on Copley and Healy lawn to celebrate the last Friday of classes before study days begin. Aside from what you’d expect, there’s a lot of fun stuff planned for Georgetown Day 2014. Vox is here with a rundown of what’s going on.
Andi Debellis (MSB ’14), chair of the Georgetown Day Planning Committee, supplied Vox with the event schedule. The schedule is not likely to change much, but a few student group performance time slots may be shifted around between now and Friday.
There will be lots of food trucks out around the lawns, as well as several inflatables, including a mechanical bull, a rock wall, an obstacle course, a dunk tank, and a photo booth.
From 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., there will be a concert and keg party on the Hariri Patios and Regents lawn. The band Casey Abrams is performing at the concert and Stone Cold Fox is opening. All Georgetown students can attend the concert, but the keg party will be held in a separate area reserved for 21+ students.
