On Saturday, I attended the last Fall Festival at Hofstra that I will ever attend before becoming Hofstra alumni. The Vibe Live concert and carnival was a totally mind blowing trip through the 80s all the way to the future and back.
I took tons of photos to remember it by, so here’s a photo diary of the 2014 Hofstra Fall Festival and Vibe Live Carnival, featuring Rubix Qube, TLC, Matt & Kim and Janelle Monae!
Parade of Floats
This year, Hofstra student-run organizations created Disney-themed floats. Game of Thrones won first place!
Rockin’ those “Thank You” signs!
Our Fall Festival 2013 King and Queen, Justin and Rachel!
Mascots Kate and Willie, followed by the cheerleaders
Cinderella float (THE PUMPKIN WAS ON AUTOMATED ROTATION. WHUT.)
The Princess and the Frog float. (Peep Emi in the red dress doing the Princess wave…)
Lion King float
Game of Thrones float (winning float!)
Imani Dance Ensemble and TransenDANCE tore up the stage following the Parade of Floats.
TransenDANCE! (Aja’s hair tho!)
Werk it, girl.
Vibe Live Concert and Carnival
This year’s lineup was insane. Rubix Qube, 80s cover band made us reminisce, TLC made us proud to be 90s kids, Matt & Kim reminded us how cool it is to be weird and Janelle Monae put the electric in Electric Lady. The carnival rides were super fun, especially the Swinger in the cool September breeze.
Video killed the radio star…
Yes, that’s supposed to be Cher in FISHNETS. Cue male stage hands with smartphone cameras.
I can imagine the person in that spacesuit melted from the heat. Honestly, that must have been torturous.
Don’t go chasin’ waterfalls…
T-boz is workin’ that blond side cut!
Omj I love Chilli ❤
Our 2014 Fall Festival King and Queen, George C. and Hanna K.!
Kim from Matt & Kim going batsh*t crazy and walking on the crowd.
I did NOT ride the Zipper. Not about that life after that Astoria carnival in June -_- (Peep Aja’s poofy hair :p)
The 2000! Wooooohooo!
Aja looks so futuristic while on the Swinger.
The moment we’d all been waiting for *squeels*
Tip on the tight rope…
I can has the cape, Mizz Monae?
This one’s for the lovers. (PrimeTime)
I had way too much fun over the weekend. Why did it have to end?
Thank you, Hofstra University for bringing such awesome talent to homecoming over the past three years!
