Every spring, the U of O hosts a carnival for students to participate in free of charge. It’s an event where people can roam around with friends and participate in games and activities that transport them to a state of pure childhood nostalgia. Our team here at Spoon UOregon set up a whip cream fiasco booth called Pie in the Face and, well… it lived up to its name.
Pies + Faces = Fun.
Sticky messy fun.
Soon everyone got in on the action.
Soon, even some of our own Spoon members had to take a turn on the throwing side…
Before she knew it, Spoon marketing member Amanda Peth was pelted by friendly fire…
All in all, the whole carnival was a success. Students had fun, people were excited to play games for cheesy prizes and everyone who came out seemed to enjoy themselves and relive some childhood excitement from their youth. Our Spoon staff successfully passed out flyers and chatted with carnival goers in an effort to inform the student body about the UO’s involvement with Spoon University and encourage curious minds to check out our webpage. Most importantly, students were lining up to throw some whip cream pies at some lovely faces and have a blast.
Sophomore Alani Estrella, a chemistry major, and Jacob Cantu, a freshman studying sports business, got lured into the action (pictured above). Despite receiving some whipped topping shrapnel, both greatly enjoyed their pie throwing experience.
