Another Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) Homecoming has come and gone! If you missed the hoopla on Saturday, Feb. 27, don’t fret! We’ve got a detailed rundown of the event.

Students, faculty, alumni, family and friends braved the 80 degree weather on Saturday equipped with sunglasses and a whole lot of sunscreen. The fun-filled day at Bronco Commons included petting zoos, campus tours, informational booths, carnival attractions and much more.

The festival kicked off at 1 p.m. with carnival activities that included a Ferris wheel, giant slide, paratrooper and giant swings. There were informational tents set up by various clubs, organizations and alumni featuring free giveaways.

The Drums performed songs “Money,” “Days,” “The Future” and much more as the crowd swayed to the guitar riffs and swooned over lead singer Johnny Pierce’s Morrissey-like dance moves.
