East Carolina University will host the third annual Beach Festival from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. Sept. 4 at the North Recreational Complex.
The popular attraction drew more than 1,200 students in its first two years. Activities include a 300-foot zip line, a DJ, kayaking, stand up paddle boards, disc golf, corn hole, horseshoes, beach volleyball, bocce ball, karaoke, demonstrations and inflatables. Participants may enjoy free food and take-home giveaways such as souvenir Beach Festival glasses, golf discs, beach towels, ear buds and T-shirts.
“The Beach Festival is an opportunity to promote activities and introduce the amazing facilities that are available for ECU students at the North Recreational Complex,” said Janis Steele, associate director of facilities with Campus Recreation and Wellness.
Beach Festival is part of ECU’s Plunge into Purple, a series of events and programs in the first six weeks of the semester aimed at welcoming students to the university through education, socialization and involvement. The event is presented by Campus Recreation and Wellness in collaboration with the Student Activities Board.
All ECU students, faculty and staff are welcomed. An ECU One Card is required for admittance. ECU Transit will provide bus service to and from the complex.
Media are welcome to attend and cover the Beach Festival. Please check in at the front gate at the event for additional information. For more information about the North Recreational Complex, visit www.ecu.edu/crw or call (252) 328-1571.
