Tech Celebrates New Year with Fireworks & More

Light Up the Night TechFest 2010

Fort Wayne, Ind.—Indiana Tech is inviting the Fort Wayne community to join students, staff, and faculty for a free celebration marking the beginning of the 2010-2011 academic year.

From 7 to 9:30 p.m. on August 30, “Light Up the Night: TechFest 2010” will combine elements of light and technology throughout the evening, culminating with a fireworks display to end the night with a bang. The event will include:

  • Performances by music group Unlikely Alibi, fire eaters, and other live performers
  • An interactive fog screen and light show
  • Carnival and technology-related games for all ages
  • Food concessions
  • Free giveaways for students, alumni, employees and community guests

The tradition of hosting a campus and community celebration at the beginning of the year began with a Blessid Union of Souls concert for the university’s 75th anniversary in 2005. This year’s event commemorates Indiana Tech’s 80th anniversary by celebrating the university’s growth in recent years and looking forward to a bright future.

“In the years since that first concert, we’ve staged events on a smaller scale,” said Jessica Inniger, director of student life. “With the 80th anniversary this year, we really wanted to pull out all of the stops and thank all those who have helped make Indiana Tech successful throughout those years.”
