Springtime at UVa-Wise means that Cavapalooza is returning for another year of carnival fun.
The highly anticipated event will take place on April 14 from 8-11 p.m. at the top parking lot of the David J. Prior Convocation Center, the same location as last year.
There will be new rides this year as well as some favorites that are returning. These rides may include, but are not limited to, a Ferris wheel, mechanical bull, mechanical swings, and bumper cars.
Cavapalooza also will feature Hungry Hippo, Daredevil blow up rides, and a prize booth with chances to win many electronic prizes such as a television and Bluetooth speakers.
In addition to those attractions, there will be a beverage garden – ID required – and upwards of ten food trucks. The food trucks will accept both cash and card.
Cavapalooza is exclusive to UVa-Wise students, faculty and staff. Students can bring one non-UVa-Wise guest by showing a valid ID. Students must have a valid Cavs Card for entrance.
Also, Cavalier Connection will be running a 20-minute route for the event which will begin at Walk2Campus, stop at the entrance to Greear Gymnasium as well as the circle at the Slemp Student Center before dropping people off at Cavapalooza.
In addition, parking will be available at the parking lot above the football field.
