Springfest or no Springfest, several James Madison University student organizations are hosting positive, fun and alcohol-free events this weekend.

On Monday, more than 100 students tie-dyed t-shirts for "Madipalooza," a concert and festival event set for all day Saturday.

More than 500 students have already signed up for "The Big Event," a service project where students will volunteer in Harrisonburg Saturday.

Students participating say it's a great way to give back and enjoy time with friends.

"I'm so excited. It's a free concert. We get to just go out and kind of chill. Hopefully the weather will be beautiful because being outside and enjoying it is better with your friends than getting drunk and partying with a bunch of police, and we don't want a repeat of last year for sure," says JMU Sophomore Keara Mahan, who is participating in "Madipalooza."

"Madipalooza" will showcase several musical acts, as well as have food and games, and is free for students. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
