Friday, September 6, Boise State held its Blue and Orange Color Fest. The turnout was huge and everyone was excited.
“I saw that they advertised it on Instagram. It’s a really cool way to start out the first few weeks of school,” said Alexis Dzmura, a freshman communication major. “It was really fun.”
Everyone who went seemed to bring all of his or her friends along. People were throwing chalk left and right.
“My favorite part was throwing it in each other’s faces,” said Wyatt Penington, a freshman business major.
The purpose was, of course to get everyone pumped for the big game the following day against Tennessee-Martin at Bronco Stadium.
“It was very spirited and fun. I like how they give out the color for free and you can take as much as you want. The best part was seeing all the colors in the air, blue and orange! I’m pumped for the game,” said Brittany Berg, a freshman majoring in nursing.
The chalk floating in the air was definitely mesmerizing. Everyone was ready to throw a handful up for the cameras and get covered in blue and orange dust. There was a high turnout of freshman who had a great time at the event.
“I didn’t think that throwing color would be this much fun. I’ve never done anything like this, so I wanted to try it. It was so fun!” said Ashley Eckman, a freshman nursing major.
Anyone who wasn’t already doused with color would be pelted as soon as crossing the line into the event. People were getting dust balls to the face upon arrival and didn’t seem to mind one bit.
“My favorite part was gettin’ dirty! I loved it,” said Savannah Reynolds, a freshman graphic design major.
There were prizes being given out and there were smiles all around. The blue and orange chalk cloud hovering over the stadium was just the thing to get people excited for the upcoming game.
