The library was the locale of choice for many procrastinators on Sunday afternoon, but the real place to be was the backyard of Outhouse. Fall Fest, an annual autumnal celebration organized by Outhouse and the Outing Club, featured everything that’s great about fall (hot cider, piles of leaves) and other things that are just great in general (live acoustic sets by Wesleyan musicians, a slackline, doughnuts on a string). From 12 to 3 p.m., students joined in on the festivities.
“I am very grateful for all the help that went into making Fall Fest a great success,” wrote Eliza Kingsley-Ma ’15, the House Manager of Outhouse, in an email to The Argus. “The beauty of Fall Fest is how simple it is: fill a tent with plastic balls, lay out some sleeping bags, make a vat of cider and everyone is happy. Highlights include the many slackliners, apple crisps, painted rocks, and wonderful musicians who performed today.”
Evan Keyes ’14, an Outing Club leader who helped organize Fall Fest, agreed that it was a success.
“Marvelous weather, fun activities, live music, delicious food, awesome people, all these things made it great,” he wrote in an email to The Argus. “Also, we literally had leaves falling throughout the afternoon. Even the trees were participating.”
