MORE PICNIC DAY
With so many events to see, exhibits to visit and foods to try, it's impossible for any one person to see all of Picnic Day. Luckily, the shared experiences of social media make it easier to experience snippets from all over the campus's 104th open house.
Strike up the band
The Picnic Day Parade had a new addition: Chancellor Gary S. May, giving his first welcoming remarks. Watch a full video of the parade on UC Davis' Periscope account.
These aren't ordinary Frisbee dogs
The Canine Medicine Club's annual Frisbee Dog Contest is always a crowd-pleaser on Picnic Day. Watch a dog named Finn show off his tricks in the above video.

Twitter Moment: Picnic Day wrap-up
UC Davis: Picnic Day is an annual open house for the community to celebrate what UC Davis has to offer. Organized and run by students, this event has over 200 events and is visited by over 60k people every year. This year's theme - Where the Sun Shines!
Give Day meant fun appeals
Picnic Day wasn't the only reason for Aggies to mark their calendars last weekend. Friday and Saturday made up Give Day, an annual event for supporters to give to their favorite UC Davis programs. The event gave reasons for programs like the men's basketball team, above, to show off their skills and make an appeal for support.
