The carnival was incredible, the assorted vendors were super neat, the outdoor live music was incredible, and T-PAIN was intense! Everything went well, and it was an absolute pleasure to be working this year and helping to create this weekend for all of us to enjoy.
All of us at SEB would like to thank everyone for coming, and we hope to see you at future events, and future Quadmanias!
Since I do most of the posts on this blog, I thought I'd post a few personal highlights from my own experience (I was at the carnival all days and did not attend the T-Pain show, in case anyone is wondering).
+ THE ZIPPER ride was INTENSE!
+ Adam Taylor was really really great, and nice as ever. So glad we got him to come back to UMBC!
+ FREE lazer tag and photo keychains!
+ Dan Deacon had everyone do crazy dances and basically act like kids... just what we all need more of in our lives, and I do honestly believe that. Finally, I wasn't the only one dancing like a maniac!
+ Georgie James played a fantastic set, relying on handclaps from the crowd for percussion. It was a really nice way to cap off Saturday for those of us who stayed until the end of the carnival. They even passed out stickers after their set for those fans who hung around to thank them.
+ Student organizations had tons of great giveaways, like WMBC's basket of free CDs, and UHS's whole selection of prizes and treats!
+ The awesome weather (which sadly, didn't hold up on Sunday)
For me, this was definitely an amazing experience. It was the first Quadmania that I have experienced on the Student Events Board, so I got to take part of the planning right from the beginning. It was so exciting witnessing all of our hard work and ideas take shape. Thanks AGAIN to everyone who participated, it was truly an amazing experience that I won't soon forget, and I hope the same is true for everyone else!
