McMASTER's NEWEST TRADITION IS BACK!

Light up the Night: Third Annual Year-end block party

To celebrate the end of class, the McMaster University Alumni Association, the McMaster Students Union and the Student Success Centre have partnered to create a truly awesome experience. We will Light Up the Night with thousands of bulbs strung between campus buildings and trees, culminating with a fireworks show at 10 PM.

The third annual year-end block party will feature carnivalesque rides, games and food.  Ride the Gravitron, have fun with friends in the Para-Trooper, or take in the view from the Ferris wheel. Stroll the street playing the midway games and enjoy traditional carnival food. In addition, Light Up the Night will boast a main stage, as well as a side stage. Special musical guests will include Jazz Cartier and Fateh on the main stage, with even more talent on the side stage. In addition, the annual Last Lecture with Q&A in Burridge Gym will feature comedian, actor and writer, Sabrina Jalees.

Food will be plentiful on April 6, with thousands of churros and mini corn dogs offered up for free, along side an even bigger supply of complimentary carnival favorites such as cotton candy and caramel corn. 

This is a free event, all McMaster students & alumni are welcome. Please note, a McMaster University student card will be required for access to the free food vendors and for ride admissions.
