Members of the UB prepared for Air Fair by setting up tables with stations of balloon animals, face painting and carnival-themed foods such as funnel cake and a popcorn machine.

Sienna Mark, a sophomore management major and the secretary of the UB, said she enjoyed seeing everyone happy.

“It’s just a fun rush hour event that is put on to brighten up people’s day and create a nice send-off before students go home for break,” Mark said.

Mark said future events are in the making for the UB.

“My committee specifically does larger events,” she said. “We’ve done Welcome Back Weekend, (Family Weekend) and we’re even having an ice skating rink later the week after break.”

Megan Kiselewski, a sophomore middle education major, said she loved how the event brought out the child-like side of each student.

“That’s something we all strive to be like,” she said.
