Family funfest to replace Family Weekend concert

Luis Martinez, Entertainment Editor

“Family Funfest,” a family version of UB’s “Up All Night” will be the replacement for the concert.

Three Dog Night, which was scheduled to be the Family Weekend concert, was canceled Friday because of health concerns with the band.

Ceci Brinker, the director of student life, said the event would be free for students and their families.

“We’ve just spent the last couple of days just lining up some live entertainment, some interactive entertainment,” Brinker said. “We’re just going to kind of just showcase stuff throughout the Union for three hours.”

Brinker said there are three major activities going on during the event on Saturday, including an interactive game show, a ventriloquist comedian, and a hypnotist.

“Family Funfest” is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.
