While some students were taking a wild ride on the Whirly Bird and others were facing off in gladiatorial bouts, and still others rocked and bopped to the sound of Blanks, they all shared one thing: They were wet. At first, just intermittently wet, then as annual Springfest partied on, pretty darn wet, then in the middle of a set by the punk band Plan B for Type A’s, pretty much soaked as the heavens opened up and blessed the festivities with a deluge. Another thing all the good-sport attendees had in common: a great time.
