Davisville Checks in on Picnic Day, Mar 28th, 2011

Picnic Day, on April 16, is getting close. Last year’s event was plagued by off-campus drunkenness, arrests, and general obnoxiousness. This year the city, merchants and UC Davis have taken steps to inhibit that behavior. Will the countermeasures work? On this edition of “Davisville,” Entertainment Director Mac Walker and Parade Director Jennifer Mappus, both members of the student-run Picnic Day board, discuss this year’s plans, entertainment lineup, parade, and other attractions. At the end, they discuss how they will be able to tell if Picnic Day met its goals this year, and how they'll spend the day themselves.
