(LEBANON, Ill., April 14, 2015) - Live music featuring local and regional bands, inflatable set-ups and more will be part of the fun at McKendree University’s Spring Fling on Saturday, April 25 from noon to 5 p.m.

The annual end-of-school-year event is open to the community. A variety of activities will be set up on the campus quad, west of Alton Street in Lebanon.

Local and regional bands will perform, including the all-male a cappella group KaZual at 2:30 p.m. and Dirty Muggs at 3:30 p.m.

“We’re really looking forward to this musical line-up,” said Shyla Bougor-Miner, traditions programming coordinator for the Campus Activities Board. “There’s a little bit of something for everyone – cover tunes and some original music that spans a variety of genres.”

Inflatables, obstacle courses, bounce houses, jousting arenas and water slides will be set up on the quad, as well as concession stands by several local eateries. Other activities will include airbrush tattoos, caricatures, a psychic, a balloon artist and much more!

Many games and inflatable activities are free of charge. Several student organizations will be on hand hosting fundraisers to assist their groups. Concessions will be available for purchase.
