Cayuga Community College To Host Annual Peace Festival

FULTON, NY – The Cayuga Community College Student Activities Board and student organizations will host a Peace Festival from noon to 6 p.m. on April 28 at the Fulton Campus, 806 West Broadway.

The event is free and open to the public.

“Last year, everyone loved the games, especially the dunk booth and the balloon artist Haley Watts,” said event organizer Angela Wornick, student activity coordinator at the Fulton Campus. “These fun activities will be back again this year.”

In addition to the dunk tank and carnival games, the festival will feature tie-dying T-shirts for $12. People of all ages can also participate in a range of “inflatable activities,” including a bounce house and slide.

Most of the events are free or available for a minimal fee.

Acoustic musician Todd Carey will provide the musical entertainment.

Organizers changed the date from a Friday to a Saturday to encourage more families to attend.

“I hope that our students, staff, faculty come and bring their families as well as the members of our community,” Wornick said.

“The Peace Festival is really a celebration of the end of our academic year, but this year, it’s also our last big event for students on our current campus,” said Director of Student Activities Norman Lee. “Next year, we expect to be celebrating on our new campus at River Glen. So we’ll also be marking the end of an era for the Fulton Campus at our Broadway site.”

This year, people will be able to purchase barbecue chicken dinners for $5 and other food items will be available for purchase.

The event was organized by Wornick, Lee and the Student Activities Board on the Fulton Campus. Members of all the student organizations are also assisting with the event.
