A wet n' wild Homecoming Carnival

The forecast looked pretty good at the beginning of this week, but we could only make it without rain for so long during Homecoming.

Still, the rain couldn't "dampen" our mood as the Student Programming Council (SPC) set up for the Homecoming Carnival last night and by 8 p.m. when the rain finally stopped, students came out in droves for popcorn and cotton candy, 16 cakes, rides, and an assortment of inflatables.

The turbo tubs were a hit and the chair swing ride in the middle of Asbury Circle definitely spun faster than I imagined.

The rain seemed to know when the carnival ended because a few hours later when we started cleaning up, no one could escape the torrential downpour.

Depsite the weather, it was a great turn out for one of Emory's newest Homecoming traditions.

Alumni, I hope to see you tomorrow at the parade, the tailgate, the soccer game and the Five for Fighting concert. Remember, it's a marathon of a Homecoming day. Pace yourselves!
