Face-Off: Celebrating with enemies at Harvest Fest 2012
November 15th, 2012 | Hope Hamilton
College students who meet together to come up with creative ideas have often been accused of accomplishing great things, and last weekend’s Harvest Fest hosted by the student Activities Board was a great work of art. “What is Harvest Fest?” you may ask, so allow me to explain.
Every year in the fall at Evangel, there is a grand event by the name of Harvest Fest which takes place. Harvest Fest has a different costume theme every year, and this year the theme was “Face-Off,” or opposing things or people.
Students driving to Remington’s event center by the hundreds on Saturday, November 10, may have caught a few weird glances from other people in traffic.
Some of the creative costuming included a LEGO and a foot, the Hunger Games cast, Princess Leia and a stormtrooper, the Grinch and Santa Clause, and Eve and the snake.
The night consisted of fellowshipping with ridiculously costumed friends, taking thousands of pictures, and a whole line up of skits, videos, dances and student band performances.
I went as an alien with a group of cowboys and had an incredible amount of fun seeing the creativity of students, especially displayed in the skits and band performances. Any student can try out for Harvest Fest. As a result, there was a great amount of talent displayed, and students were given the opportunity to see their friends in a whole new light.
One of the things I enjoyed about Harvest Fest was that I had a friend visiting from home for the first time, and after seeing the performances by passionate and talented students and laughing hysterically at the Activities Board skits, she fell in love with Evangel and wants to come back as soon as she can.
The opportunities for fun at Evangel are endless, and whether you play an instrument, sing, act, do stand-up or just enjoy dressing up and having fun, there is a place at Evangel for you.
Hats off to Activities Board members for a memorable and phenomenal evening of fun.
