By Maegan Murray, WSU Tri-Cities

RICHLAND, Wash. – Washington State University Tri-Cities welcomes the public to join in celebrating current, past and future Cougs as part of its annual Crimson Fest on March 31.

The free event, which begins at 4 p.m. on campus, will feature carnival games, a climbing wall, food trucks, inflatable Coug-themed playground equipment, a video game trailer, a photo booth, cotton candy and a range of other activities.

“Crimson fest is one of the most exciting events for me because it brings everyone together and creates that sense of belonging, as well as lots of Cougar pride,” said Israa Alshaikhli, president of the Associated Students of WSU Tri-Cities. “It really makes me happy to see our students, their families, alumni and community members all come to together to enjoy this day.”

Students, faculty and staff will go head to head in a dodgeball game at 4 p.m. During that time, those attending may complete crafts, some of which include rock painting and creating galaxy jars.

Individuals may then participate in ASWSUTC’s 5K Fun Run at 5 p.m., with the race beginning at 6 p.m. Register for the run at http://tricities.wsu.edu/studentlife/aswsutc. The runs costs $25 for the general public, $20 for WSU alumni, $15 for WSU Tri-Cities students and employees and $10 for children ages 6-12. Children ages 5 and younger get in free. The run will also feature a 50-yard dash for children, and prizes will be awarded to top finishers.

The evening will come to a close with a screening of “Guardians of the Galaxy” at 8 p.m. in the East Auditorium.

Crimson Fest is put on by ASWSUTC, the Student Entertainment Board, the Office of Student life, the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and club sports.
