Spring Festival, formerly known as Hoedown Days, was in full swing on Tuesday, April 1, with clubs hosting a variety of games to help raise funds for their clubs.

The booths were set up along Falcon Square with balloon animals, a trivia game and a puppet act entertaining the crowds that passed by the event.

Nursing major, Kevin Lebrilla participated in the trivia games and won a special prize.

“It’s a pencil. It’s absolutely amazing. And it has camouflage,” he said. “This is (a) weapon of war and I can be sneaking in the jungle.”

Lebrilla also liked how it had the feel of a carnival with all the games that were available to the people in attendance.

Art major, Butch Locsin, is part of the Art Society Club and painted his face with inspiration from the Mexican tradition of The Day of the Dead.

He participated in the face painting in hopes to get other people involved. The reaction to the event was mostly positive.

“We already have four people right here, so I should really start buckling down and start doing some face painting,” he said. “We have continuous amount of people show up and we are making some change for the club.”

ASCC President Juan Ramirez has attended three Spring Festivals since he has been at Cerritos College and has seen the growth of the event.

“I’ve think that it has been a fantastic event so far,” he said. “This is my third Spring Festival since I have attended Cerritos College and I feel that it gets more attention and more people come every year.”

Spring Festival continues for the next two days with the chili cook off on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and the video game truck on Thursday at 11 a.m.
