ST. CLOUD STATE — Question: What event is 50 hours long, yields a ceiling-high stack of empty pizza boxes and brings the St. Cloud area together for a marathon of random knowledge and excitement?
Answer: Trivia weekend at St. Cloud State University, of course!
This weekend the event rolled out strong for its 40th year — and with this anniversary lining up with the university’s sesquicentennial this year, the theme was “Trivia University.”
The event is put on my KVSC-FM, 88.1 radio, the university’s station. Forty-seven teams participated in the 50-hour run of trivia that started Friday evening, and they varied in size and ferocity to take home the top spot by the end of Sunday.
