By: Jessica Rosas
The first annual College Park Spring Fling took place on the field on May 11, 2018. Spring Fling is a Music Festival that featured local Bay Area rising music artists that was organized and hosted by Leadership. It was an open and free event to the public.
There were many activities such as bungee jumping , arcade basketball, football games, a water bucket and face painting. Spring Fling also had a variety of food from Round Table, Grilled Cheese Cafe, and Rancho Grande Taqueria. Student bands were present such as The Cause, Resky, Half Mad, Intermission, Novicain Road, Captivated and our own resident DJ, junior Ethan G, who put on a show for students.
The community was present and students from all over the district came together for an evening of fun.
Junior Kayla Ortiz had an amazing time.
“I had so much fun with my friends, I made a lot of new friends. I loved the music and I can’t wait for next year,” Ortiz said.
Junior Jackie Cuevas who attends Las Lomas High School in Walnut Creek, California agreed.
“I’m so happy I came to Spring Fling. I really like the food and the music. It was a fun time to relax and have fun. College Park did an amazing job,” Cuevas added.
Leadership was also impressed with the outcome.
“I believe Spring Fling was a success, for our first year I believe it was amazing the music was incredible and next year will be better were planning to have more music and more food, and probably changed the time and extended it more but in overall it was perfect,” Senior Josh Lofamia said.
“Next year will be bigger and better this year it wasn’t as much people we didn’t have a lot of time and we didn’t want to go all out but now we know, and were going to prepare to make Spring Fling better,” Senior Armon Aziz said.
