Make the Most of Blue-White Week Activities

As Blue-White weekend quickly approaches, there’s no better time than the present to catch up on events leading up to the big game. Events are spread out all over campus all week for the annual spring game. Check out the schedule below for what’s going on this week.

Tuesday, April 16 – Thursday, April 18

HUB Activities from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. includes multiple food stands with wings, popcorn, cupcakes, and cotton candy. Aside from the food, there will be autograph sessions with various Penn State varsity sports teams, with a specific table dedicated to the men’s basketball team. Photos can be taken with the players of the different teams. A DJ and music stand will liven up the building, and prize wheel can be your ticket to tons of fun prizes. There will also be a basketball shootout contest in the HUB; the top five players and five randomly selected players will win an unknown PSU football-related prize!

Friday marks the beginning of the actual Blue-White weekend, and also kicks off the Blue-White carnival and Wing Fest. The Blue-White Carnival is known for its food and especially its wings, in which the various vendors face off in a wing-selling competition. The carnival runs from 4 p.m. until around 10:30 p.m. — make sure to buy carnival tickets to gain access to rides and stands. Wing Fest ends around 8:30, which will be topped off with a fireworks show! Check out the stage area by the carnival to hear various music performers and speakers.

Game Day! Tailgate with any friends and family coming to visit in the spring ball spirit and get ready for the 2013 season the right way — the fields will be packed. If you’re not looking to tailgate (or you have been tailgating and need some nourishment), hit up the carnival going on around the stadium beginning at 2 p.m. For all you early risers out there, snag a chance to meet even more varsity athletes at the expanded autograph session and photo shoot at 8 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. The game starts at noon, so be sure to get around to see everything going on in Happy Valley before heading into the stadium.

Penn State athletics also has a full slate this weekend. Check out the schedule below to see all your spring Nittany Lions sports teams in action at home.
