UVa Greek Community Hosts Mid-Autumns Carnival

September 16, 2007

Thousands were able to peel themselves away from the UVa football game Saturday as the university's Greek community put on the second annual Mid-Autumns Carnival.

Each fraternity and sorority set up a booth Saturday afternoon to help area children, play games and enjoy several inflatable attractions. The kids weren't the only ones having a good time.

"It's cool to, like, see all the kids because you're surrounded by all this college. All you see is college kids all week, and you come here. It's good to see all the families and stuff," said Virginia Wood of Delta Zeta Sorority.

Last year's carnival raised $7,000 for charity. This year's proceeds will be split between helping to keep up parks around Charlottesville as well as to build schools in Uganda.
