Communiversity set for April 24

The Communiversity celebration, which annually brings the town and University together for a day of performances, food, games and more, is planned for noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 24.

Scheduled to take place rain or shine on Nassau and Witherspoon streets and the campus, the event is sponsored by students at the University and the Arts Council of Princeton. Merchants, nonprofit organizations, musicians, performing and visual artists and food vendors will turn the area into a colorful fairground with events for students and families alike. (For some facts and figures on the event, see "By the numbers" on page 2.)

Traditional favorites on four stages will include Flamenco Puro, Sympoh and Naacho . Children's activities -- face painting and interactive science demonstrations -- will take place on Alexander Beach, and student booths will be set up in front of Nassau Hall. The athletics department will offer a variety of sports games and demonstrations put on by student athletes on Cannon Green. Arch sings in the Blair and East Pyne arches will feature Princetons a cappella groups.

An addition this year will be tours of the campus by the student-led Orange Key guide service. They will leave from in front of Nassau Hall throughout the festival.

The University's International Center will continue its tradition of participation with an elaborate flag procession beginning at 2 p.m. on the Nassau Street stage and ending on campus. Each flag will represent a Princeton student's home country. The center also will provide international foods and sponsor performances, including the popular Chinese lion dance.

In addition to the children's activities on Alexander Beach, there will be interactive story-telling by the Middle Earth Theater as well as other activities sponsored by the Cotsen Children's Library.
