The intense heat of South Texas weather didn’t stop the many organizations of Texas A&M University-Kingsville from occupying University Blvd. for the annual Spring Fling, with booths for both food and beverages, March 29.
The eats ranged from BBQ sandwiches to chicken kabobs and drinks varied from simple bottles of water to “Mocktails,” as in non-alcoholic versions of popular alcoholic beverages.
“I enjoy Spring Fling because it brings out the whole community in Kingsville as well as a lot of college students in an environment that is family friendly,” said TAMUK student Matthew Grayshown.
Adults and children alike baked in the hot sun to enjoy the festivities that included fun little games such as a big inflatable obstacle course and a mock laser security system simulation made with plastic pipes and string.
There was also live music, and a petting zoo for the children to pet animals.
Dogs were a particularly popular attraction and organizations took advantage of that, setting up booths to sell dog treats to dog owners.
“I just love being a part of it, it gives me something to do and I get to help out my organization,” said TAMUK student Samantha Brock.
The participating students had a look of glee on their faces
Filled with pride and passion for doing what they can to make sure that the club they chose can be the best they can be at all times.
No matter the motivation, whether it’s making money, having a good time, or just a little exercise, it truly felt like Spring was in the air.
