For the past two years in September, Colby students have made their way to Head of Falls in Waterville for a day of music, games, food, and community building. The Hill ’n the ’Ville festival was originally developed by Colby students to improve student-town relations by creating an opportunity for people on both “sides” to get to know each other in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. This year, Hill ’n the ’Ville accomplished just that in one glorious day.

High-spirited vendors had everything from fried dough to tie-dyed shirts. Younger Waterville community members—with the help of Colby students—played a variety of carnival games, including the ever-popular dunk tank. Students from Colby, Unity College, and Thomas College joined people from the surrounding area for the day's music festival, mingling and dancing until the sun went down. The Headrights, a Colby band, kicked things off, followed by The Calypso Soldiers, the Brew, Ryan Montbleau, and lastly, State Radio.

Hill ’n the ’Ville surpassed last year’s turnout and everyone should look forward to next year’s festival, which, with luck, will be on a day just as beautiful as this year.
