Hampdenfest is filled with fun, food, music, and toilet bowl races. Yes, I said toilet bowl races. People race their toilets to victory… it’s a must see! WLOY raffled off tickets for shows and entertained Hampdenfest goers with our awesome music. If you missed it, don’t worry, we documented the fun for you.

We’re rolling back into Hampden for the 2013 Hampdenfest! Unfortunately our eating machine Alex Fili has graduated and can’t interrupt her dental studies to join us for a threepeat in the Bread Pudding Eating Contest. We are seeking a worthy successor now…
As always Hampdenfest brings music, dancing, eating, drinking, toilet bowl races, and Hampden Idol. WLOY will be at Roland & 36th Street.
And Loyola shuttles to get students on site. This is a great way to explore a new community for all you first year students! Pickup behind Boulder at 10am, 1pm and 4pm with drop off and pickup at 36th & Keswick by the festival. Last return from Hampden at 7pm. That’s a FREE shuttle

Yep, it’s already that time of year! School is about to start and we just got our invitation to join the Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade for the 4th year in a row! We’re proud to represent all of Loyola, but also all of the local universities and non-commercial media since we appear to again be the only ones invited. It’s just how we roll. Now, how many candy canes…
