Spring Carnival Booth

Spring Carnival is an annual CMU tradition filled with carnival food, games, and events. One such event is the construction of student organization booths – where we will come together and build multi-storey structures of a chosen theme. These booths include interactive games and decorative elements.  In 2022, SSA’s booth themed after Changi Airport’s Kinetic Rain won the first prize for the Blitz Booth category and the environmental award. 

Join us in Spring Carnival 2023, on April 13-15! The theme is Scotty in Wonderland, and we will be bringing Gardens by the Bay to CMU.
