Light Up the Night

To celebrate the end of class, the McMaster University Alumni Association, the McMaster Students Union and the Student Success Centre have partnered to create a truly awesome experience. We will Light Up the Night with thousands of bulbs strung between campus buildings and trees, culminating with a fireworks show at 10 PM. The second annual year-end block party will feature carnivalesque rides, games and food. Ride the Gravitron, have fun with friends in the Tilt-a-Whril, or take in the view from the Ferris wheel. Stroll the street playing the midway games and enjoy traditional carnival food. In addition, Light Up the Night will boast a main stage, a side stage and a DJ booth. Special musical guests Yukon Blonde and Darenots will take the main stage shortly before 9pm, with live music from 8pm onward. In addition, Canadian media icon, George Stroumboulopulos will deliver a Last Lecture with Q&A in Burridge Gym. Food will be plentiful on April 8, with thousands of mini-corn dogs and churros offered up for free, along side an even bigger supply of complimentary carnival favorites such as cotton candy and caramel corn. Gorilla Cheese will also be on hand at Light up the Night, supplying their traditional menu with cash and carry service. This is a free event, all McMaster students & alumni are welcome. Please note, a McMaster University student card will be required for access to the free food vendors and for ride admissions.
