It is that time of year again.
The Memorial Union Terrace will celebrate the warm weather Tuesday by returning its popular sunburst chairs to their lakeside home at 4:30 p.m., the Wisconsin Union announced Monday.
The Union will begin Terrace season — an almost 90-year-old tradition — by inviting UW-Madison students and community members to line up at the North Park Street entrance to the Terrace at 3:30 p.m. Each person in line will pick up a chair to take onto the Terrace, kicking off the 2018 Terrace season.
Tuesday’s first 500 Terrace-goers will receive free ice cream and small bags of popcorn at Der Stiftskeller from 4:30-7 p.m., which is provided by the UW-Madison class of 2018.
The Union will show free films every Monday, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, as well as five Sunday nights: June 10 and 24; July 8 and 22; and August 5.
“Terrace season means it's time to start building connections, having a good time, running into past friends, and enjoying some sun,” Union President Iffat Bhuiyan said in a release. “I am looking forward to seeing the Terrace full of people with their friends and family.”
