Brilliant weather meets LSU students turning out for annual Fall Fest
BATON ROUGE - With an expected turnout of close to 30,000 students, droves of people turned out to the LSU Parade Ground on a beautiful early October day for the always anticipated LSU Fall Fest celebration.
The annual event featuring food and music from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. saw appearances by the Golden Band from Tiger Land, LSU Golden Girls and LSU Cheerleaders. New and returning students alike received a warm welcome back to campus from LSU President F. King Alexander.
More than 65 tables representing campus units and area businesses sponsoring the event were set up along the tree line in front of the student union and along Highland Road. Information for students, giveaways and games were a big draw as has become Fall Fest tradition.
The event was free with students receiving food items after presenting their Tiger Card LSU ID.
