TUCSON, Ariz. -- Hopefully the weather will hold out for the next few days.

The University of Arizona Students Association hosts its 37th Annual Spring Fling this weekend.

It's the largest student-run carnival in the nation, offering more than 20 food booths plus dozens of midway rides and games.

Ticket sales help raise thousands of dollars for U of A clubs and organizations.

"It's a great experience for a lot of kids. We get to come out here for a weekend and what a carnival, so it's really a little stressful, but at the same time its difficult to have a bad time when you're running a carnvial," said UA Junior Brittany Steinke.

Spring fling goes until Sunday at Rillito Downs on first avenue just south of River Road.
