TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The largest student-run carnival in the U.S. will make its way to The University of Arizona mall this spring.

University officials said the UA's Spring Fling carnival will celebrate its 40th anniversary where it was originally held before it moved off campus 15 years ago.

The carnival was held at Rillito Downs for the past ten years.

Spring Fling staff hopes the move back to campus will increase the number of visitors and support for campus clubs and organizations.

Spring Fling serves as these participants' biggest fundraiser of the year. More than 500 school organizations participate, according to campus officials.

The Spring Fling team said it hopes to bring history back to campus this year in honor of the carnival's anniversary. Attendees past and present may send their photos to sfanniversary@email.arizona.edu

The event will run from Friday, April 11 through Sunday, April 13.
