Finally! Spring is in the air at Hopkins
Warmer weather and sunshine arrive just in time for annual Spring Fair festival
After a long winter and an unseasonably cool start to spring, the Johns Hopkins community turned out over the weekend to bask in the warmth and sunshine at Spring Fair.
A Hopkins hallmark since 1972 (when it was known as 3400 On Stage), Spring Fair is an annual celebration for students, faculty, staff, and the community. The event opened Friday and concluded Sunday.
Across Keyser Quad, vendors sold crafts, clothing, jewelry, and dorm room swag (like body-sized, modular beanbag chairs). On the Freshman Quad, food stands sold standard fair fare. Moon bounces and a petting zoo drew families with young children (plus students who wanted to snuggle some bunnies and sheep). Groups flocked to lounge on The Beach where musicians performed and food trucks lined Charles Street.
