ECU fraternities and sororities hold spring carnival


East Carolina University’s Greek Life organizations are holding a Spring Carnival from 4 to 7 p.m. April 13 at Briley’s Farm, Old Pactolus Rd. in Greenville. The event is open to the public, with proceeds benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Pitt County.

Keith Tingley, ECU director of Greek Life, said the event pulls together all 34 Greek fraternities and sororities on campus. As part of the annual Greek Week on campus, the students are pooling their efforts to celebrate Greek life and do something good for the community.

Tingley said the carnival allows them to provide a fun activity for children while at the same time raising money to benefit the Boys and Girls Club. He estimated 800 to 1000 ECU students will be working in shifts to put on the carnival.

Activities will include hayrides, pony rides, games and a petting zoo. The event is $2 for children aged 5 and over, $5 for adults and free for children under 5.
