Sean Kingston performs at USU’s year end festivities

Streets were named and songs were sung at Utah State University’s Aggie Fest 2011 Friday.USU President Stan Albrecht and ASUSU President Tyler Tolson clasped over-sized scissors and together cut the ceremonious ribbon, officially renaming the portion of 700 North that runs past the university Aggie Bull-evard. New street signs are already in place. The renaming comes after Logan City officials decided to give USU control of that portion of road, which runs through campus. The road was blocked off for Friday’s activities.The day was filled with music and fans who braved the cold to listen to the outdoor concerts. Sean Kingston, a Jamaican-American singer known for songs such as “Fire Burning” and “Beautiful Girls,” was the main musical event.Kingston played to a street packed full of people of all ages.USU student Steven Pontius said he came to hear Kingston and to be part of the social atmosphere.”It’s not every night you get to see Sean Kingston for free,” he said.Many younger kids also attended the concert. Emily Thatcher, age 10, noted she liked Kingston’s songs and the fact that “he’s from Jamaica.”After Kingston played, DJ Marcus Wing provided the crowd with beats to dance to as it began to lightly snow. –
