Soberfest, the annual festival promoting sobriety, will be held on Oct. 5 from 10:30 a.m. through 2 p.m. at Fountain Square. This annual event is held by JCCC’s Sexual Assault Resource Team and Drugs and Alcohol Resource Team.
Activities at Soberfest are Impaired Mario Kart, which is where students play the game, Mario Kart, while wearing glasses to make it seem like they are intoxicated, as well as potato sack races, volleyball and coloring books. There will also be coffee and donuts from Café Cà Phê.
“[Soberfest is] an event where students will be able to learn how to have fun in college without needing alcohol,” Drake Devine, Student Life ambassador and organizer, said.
Information about the consequences about underage drinking and abusive drinking will be a part of the event. The campus police department will also present on the consequences of underage drinking and buying alcohol for someone underage.
The Johnson County Rehabilitation Center will also be present to talk about their services and how they are able to help students avoid intoxication.
