Harvest Fest 2013: The night Evangel found Waldo

November 21st, 2013 | Shannyn Wong

Where’s Waldo? What happened to Amelia Earhart? Is Big Foot real?

These were a few questions that Evangel students tried to answer at this year’s Harvest Fest — “Unsolved: Encounter the Mystery.” Every fall at Evangel the costumes come out and students come together for Harvest Fest, the biggest social event of the semester. Each year’s theme a big secret until the reveal video is released in Chapel, and it’s a Chapel you don’t want to miss. Some people will have their costumes picked out and ready to go by the time the reveal video is done … but typically we are putting everything together the night before … procrastination at its finest.

Evangel’s Activities Board creates props and scenes that will blow your mind, and they pick the best entertainment to keep you laughing, smiling and having the best time. At Harvest Fest there are skits, hilarious videos and amazing performances. This year featured special appearances by Todd (the food guy) and Miss Joan (the sweetest lady you’ll ever meet). Sherlock was trying to solve a mystery, the emcees were trying to find Christmas, and we found Waldo.

Harvest Fest is definitely a fall semester highlight. When else will you get to dress up in a ridiculous costume, be with your best friends, laugh until you cry and laugh at jokes that only Evangel students would understand? Each year AB does things that are specific to that year’s theme but they also bring back fan favorites like, Thank You Notes, the costume contest and videos from the vault.

So I leave you with a mystery that only you can solve … when will you be at Evangel’s Harvest Fest?
