Packapalooza™ is an all-day block party and street festival capping off Wolfpack Welcome Week at the start of the academic year. We will have everything it takes to celebrate in NC State style, including great music, activities throughout the day, and fun entertainment for the whole family. Last year’s event had over 55,000 attendees with 300 vendor booths, and over 40 sponsoring organizations.

We were also the 12th highest trend on Twitter throughout the day in the Raleigh area and were capturing 240 tweets an hour between 9pm and 11pm on Saturday night with 60 tweets an hour up until 6pm on Sunday night. Social media became a mainstay for people to connect before, during, and after the event.
