Snowball 2018 at the Denver Broncos Mile High Stadium //Tyler Delgado
By: Emily Lovell, Beat Editor
Snow Ball, Regis’ annual winter formal, was held at Mile High Stadium on Friday November 16 this year. Tickets could be picked up in the Student Center throughout the week and were $7 a piece and $10 for a pair. Guests rode charter busses from Clarke Hall to the event and stopped at a coat check before entering the East Club Lounge.
The theme was “Snowed in at Mile High” and the decorations were appropriate. Snow-covered Christmas trees in glass bottles topped the tables added to the venue’s winter wonderland ambiance. Hors d’oeuvres such as macaroons, raspberry oat bars, and cheese plates were provided along with ice water. A beer garden was available for twenty-one year olds and up, and unlike previous years, cocktails were also available. Each guest could buy a maximum of three drinks. Cozy tables and chairs in the bar area were situated around a fireplace creating a great place to chat with friends and enjoy the evening.
The music ranged from classics like “Stayin’ Alive” by Bee Gees to “Idol” by k-pop band BTS. Aside from dancing the night away on the dance floor, guests could capture the night’s memories through a photo booth and a caricature artist. If you worked up a sweat on the dance floor, or just wanted a breath of fresh air, you could go outside and sit in stadium seats overlooking the Broncos football field.
Students generally seemed to think that this year’s Snow Ball exceeded last year’s due to its spaciousness, added activities, and awesome venue. The fairytale-like evening commenced at nine o’clock and ended at midnight. What a fantastic way to end the week!
