My stuffs set out on the table (as you can see, I didn't do much in the way of preparation)
My roommate's pottery and illustrations by another alum
Shinae (shinaynay, shinequa, shaneenee...she has a lot of nicknames) checking out my prints
The art department's booth
They had a rock wall, dandy jumper things, a band, and a hot air balloon for people to do out there. I wanted to go up in the hot air balloon SO BADLY, but the line was long and I needed to stay at the booth. It looked like fun though!
The whole event was from about 5:30 to 7:45. At 7:30 they did a big fireworks show near the Great Lawn. This was a first for Union (since I've been around anyway). I absolutely love fireworks, so I was super excited about this part of the night. Kelsey and I watched them from the parking lot, and it was a great show! To be completely honest, I expected it to be a dinky display, but it was pretty nice. The finale was even crazier than the military show I saw on July 4th.
To end out the night, I headed over to the chapel for the homecoming concert. The headliner was Jon Foreman, but one of my favorites, Brooke Waggoner, was opening for him! I used to listen to her all the time when I worked in the Cedarway office. Good times. Anyway, she was wonderful! She even played some new songs from the album she's working on. I only stayed for a few Jon Foreman songs, because Kelsey was waiting on me. What little I heard sounded good though!
All of the homecoming festivities were a great way to kick off my weekend. I hope you all are having a similarly eventful weekend!
