Mercatorstrasse 2016 was a huge success! Students and faculty celebrated the warm start to May at a galaxy themed Mercatorstrasse on May 7th.
The format was similar to previous years: the terrace of Mercator College was decked out with several outdoor tables, themed decorations created by dedicated floor reps , a unique drink menu including a blue space themed drink, delicious BBQ, various shallow pools , water balloons ( hence why there is almost always a water fight at some point during a Mercatorstrasse event : P ).
A new addition this year was “Zorb balls” , Zorb balls are huge inflatable spheres that people can step inside of, bounce off each other or roll around on their own.This is an example of one:
Overall the Mercatorstrasse event was a cheerful event like years past, where everyone can come together for a street party type of event , after a long winter.
The event is organized annually by the RA’s of Mercator as well student floor representatives. The event takes a lot of work to coordinate and this is a good opportunity to thank the people who put a lot of time and energy into this event and past ones ! ( see below)
