The University of Toledo will continue its 150th anniversary celebration and celebrate 419 Day with the outdoor Rocket Spring Festival on Centennial Mall on Wednesday, April 19.
Beginning at 5 p.m., the free, public festival sponsored by Huntington Bank will end with a bang featuring a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m. that will illuminate the sky over Main Campus to the tunes of popular hits and UToledo favorites.
Rocket Spring Festival follows President Gregory Postel’s State of the University Address that will take place at 3 p.m. in Doermann Theatre in University Hall on Main Campus.
Local food trucks will be on campus selling their popular dishes, a DJ will provide music entertainment, and fun games and activities will be provided by SuperGames.
Complimentary parking, sponsored by ParkUToledo, will be provided to attendees to both the State of the University Address and Rocket Spring Festival from 2:30 to 10 p.m. in Areas 2, 1N, 1S, 12, 13, 17, 5, 6 and 10 — with the exception of metered, handicapped and reserved spaces.
