Aggieville businesses voted this week to push Fake Patty’s Day 2020 back from Feb. 29 to March 21.
Traditionally, Fake Patty’s is the Saturday before Kansas State’s spring break. This conflicted with the Kansas State vs. University of Kansas basketball game, according to a tweet.

Marissa Peaslee, a sophomore in kinesiology, said she thinks this is a good idea.
“People may have been more likely to drink extra depending on the outcome of the game just because there was a game,” Peaslee said. “Often times, that kind of environment leads to drinking anyway so the two would not have meshed well together.”
