Manhattanville held its annual Fall Fest on the quad from Sept. 31, until Oct. 1. Parents and families gathered
around to enjoy the exciting activities, games, and performances.

Manhattanville held a roller skating disco night in Benziger Hall the night before Fall Fest on Sept. 30. Students were decked out in 70s and 80s costumes listening to the classic music of all times. Part of the event was that students could personalize their own t-shirt and take photos with friends in the photo booth.

On Sept. 31, families checked in and joined their children, siblings and cousins for fun activities on the quad. There were many activities to choose from such as The Statue of Liberty Lunch Cruise and the School of Rock Broadway Show which took place in New York City. Throughout the day, many Valiant athletic games went on such as baseball, soccer and field hockey.

The last day of Fall Fest, was a great way to kick o the year. More guests crowded the quad to join in on the fun activities with their families. Students ate with their families in Benziger Hall, and hung out on the quad to enjoy the beautiful fall weather. Everything was amazing; from the food truck to the stand selling apple cider donuts.

There were stands where students could make their own S’mores and decorate their own
pumpkins. There were multiple dance groups performing such as Manhattanville Dance Troupe, Manhattanville Dance Ensemble and MIMO. There were many student performers up on stage throughout the day and it was nice to see students interacting over their passion for music. Popcorn, cotton candy, a fortune teller, face painting, what else would you expect on a nice fall day. At last, the Gil Parris Band performed over dinner.

It was a perfect way to end the evening, and we’re looking forward to next year’s Fall Fest and what is to come!
