Free Homecoming Village to feature zipline, mechanical bull
The Daily News
At 6 p.m. on Martin Street between Riverside and University avenues, students and community members will have a chance to take place in Homecoming festivities.
The free event will feature a zip line, a mechanical bull, student bands, games and specials from businesses in the Village.
Although there is construction right around the site of the Homecoming Village, restaurants in the Village said it probably won’t affect their business.
“I don’t think [the construction] will affect us at all,” Jimmy John’s manager Joshua Smith said. “We always have a ton of business at Homecoming, there are lots of people getting sandwiches.”
Jimmy John’s will have a deal for free fountain drinks when a cup is picked up at the Homecoming Information Tent. Other deals include $2 banana splits and $1 sodas from Grandma Betty’s Ice Cream Shop, free samples from Insomnia Cookies and $3.99 pitas from Pita Pit.
“I guarantee Homecoming Village will help bring more people,” Robert Heeter, Scotty’s Brewhouse manager, said.
