Students will have the opportunity to celebrate Lynn’s vibrant Caribbean community this month during Lynn’s Caribbean Wet Fete event on April 24.
“Caribbean Wet Fete is a collaborative event hosted by SAB and the Multiculturalism and Diversity Department,” said Caryn Morris, senior. “It is a Caribbean carnival themed water party complete with food, rides and fun.”
Carnival is an integral component to the Caribbean culture and reflects a time of celebration, dance and food for all those who join in the experience. Caribbean Wet Fete aims to bring that sense of culture to campus by allowing members from a variety of cultures and ethnic backgrounds a chance to learn about Carnival and to join in the festivities.
Caribbean Wet Fete is the kick-off event to Lynn University’s Spring Fest 2017. The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the Freiburger Lawn.
The celebration is open to all Lynn students, faculty and staff. Student attendees will need a valid student ID to enter, as well as an attitude for excitement and an appetite for cultural dining. Food and refreshments will be provided accompanied by performances by a steel band and Samba dancers.
Caribbean Wet Fete is set to feature pool access, water activities and water slides, so those interested in attending are encouraged to dress accordingly. “I am excited to not only experience another culture’s celebration, but also to create a fun atmosphere for students to feel a sense of community,” said Katharine Boucher, sophomore.
“It will be a fun event to end the year [and one] that brings everyone together,” said Alex Gharabegian, freshman. “Seeing all of the work that SAB has put into this event and everything we do will be so worth it in the end.”
