The Extravaganza will have a carnival-type

rides, a magician, a pizza-eating con

attractions the Extravaganza will offer.
The CAA will also sell T-shirts to
commemorate the event.
"There will be games and things to
do for all ages," said Lisa Frye, CAA
president. "There will be games for

people attend the event. "We hope this

Local organizations will set up food

Carolina Fever members will run
games, she said.
Funding for the Extravaganza comes
from Student Congress, the athletic
department and the CAA, Frye said.
Students said they were looking
indefensible and that broadcasting a
prayer would be illegal.
