Walk the Moon’s audience at UCR’s Spring Splash.
Spring Splash began with abundant shine from the glowing Riverside sun, a display of billowing pillow-trees, and a line of eager students. Attendees were ready with colorful spring attire, shorts, flowers, and money for the lineup of food trucks worthy of an end-of-the-year festival. Sunglasses in bright shades of green, pink, white, yellow, and orange saved the crowd from squinting, courtesy of ASPB. Yellow wrist bracelets gave access to Ferris wheel rides, bungee jumping, and fluffy chickens. In short, it was a colorful day at UCR’s quarterly music festival.
