Mayfest

Friday will serve up SU's controversial new Mayfest, Euclid's beer-fueled gathering and the Block Party concert featuring N.E.R.D. and Drake.

First it was condoned, then forbidden.  Today, it returns in new form.

Syracuse police monitor Euclid Avenue despite student attendance at SU Showcase events on campus.

It was just another Monday on Euclid Avenue in Syracuse on April 19. Syracuse University students walked to and from class — some dragging their legs — while others quickly darted between slow walkers to avoid being late.

Mayfest is back this year with a few changes but students must mind their manners.

Spring’s biggest event is back, but will it be the same? Mayfest, typically a lively outside block party stretching across multiple streets, has a new home.

 Walnut Park will be the central location for the day’s festivities. The park will be split into three sections: A free beer trailer for 21 and up, a concert stage offering live performances, and a free food station.

 But the event isn’t a free-for-all.
