“[The opening ceremonies] were awesome! I was talking to my friends and was like ‘only at Carrboro would this happen.’ It was really cool. The pie-eating contest was crazy, and I did not think Ms. Montgomery was going to win. But she took it home.”

“I think it’s going really well. I think the opening ceremony is a good way to get everyone hyped and get more people to participate in Boro Blowout, and everything this year is very organized. The students and advisors have worked really hard to make sure today goes seamlessly. It looks like everyone’s having fun, having safe fun, and I’m glad we are able to continue this tradition.”

“Today’s pretty fun and hype! A lot of people kind of underrated this before today, but I think it’s turned out great. And being dunked [in the dunk tank] is really fun. It’s a great way to cool off. Also, it’s super awesome to be able to meet new groups of people!”
