From faculty to students, people from every part of the Peddie community walked through the rain to participate in the festivities of the Spring Fling.

Although the Spring Fling was originally going to be held on center campus, due to the harsh weather, Peddie Falcons gathered in the Erik B. Hanson Field House for food, rides and live music on May 16.

Food such as pizza and Rita’s Ice were offered at the event and students waited in line anxiously to get their cups of Swedish Fish and lemonade flavored Rita’s Ice.

Kicking off their shoes, students ran thorough the inflatable castles, while other students took videos of their friends being tossed off the mechanical bull.
Students were jumping so much on the inflated castle that it deflated just a half an hour before the event was over.

Live music provided by drummer Mike Coiro ’17 and his band, True Will, added to the festive atmosphere of the afternoon.

“I thought the music was great; they were very talented,” Taylor Keesling ’16 said.
Despite the weather setbacks, the Spring Fling provided relaxation and relief for all members of the Peddie community during the final days of the school year.
