Associated Students experienced a large student turnout for its Labor Day weekend alternative.

An estimated 500 students attended the Friday night pancake breakfast from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Additionally, more than 100 students attended the “Pitch Perfect” double feature at the El Rey Theatre on Saturday, where the first 100 attendees received free Aca-Taco burritos.

The Bidwell Bash BBQ on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. provided students with the chance to meet fellow peers and enjoy free food.

The barbecue was held at One Mile Recreation Area in Lower Bidwell where there was music, games and food provided by Madison Bear Garden.

Associated Students strives to provide safe and enjoyable alternatives for students looking for a different way to celebrate their Labor Day weekend.

The Associated Students barbecue also gave students a chance to interact with their student government-elected officials.

Students pay $132 each semester that goes toward AS programs and events.

“[I] love the food [and it’s] a wholesome atmosphere,” Jerad Prevost, Associated Student Government Commissioner and junior public administration major, said.
